Experimentation with colors and optical effect of meditative space is the predominant theme in my current work. I explore color relationships, light, space and harmony. Contrast and vibration produce visual and emotional tension while the formal elements in the composition bring the inner sense of order.

My painting technique applied in the Polychrome Series is mainly made of successive glazing, which brings the luminosity in colors. Alternating colors make the stripes vibrate and pulsate, shifting from the foreground to the background, while the spheres in the composition appear to recede in the background as an obscure representation, like a shadow of some sort. The final composition informs a visual experience of the colors radiating atmospheric effects while bringing serenity to the viewer's environment.
