Picture is the result of substance which is located in the "hand" and it’s (drawing (sketch), canvas (picture)  product of the emotional state of intuitive reactions.

I don’t bother to understand the notion of "repetition", I learn through experience and build my own world by opening the possibility, or asking the question whether it is possible to go further. The beauty of detecting is in the very act of creation. I would not put myself in a position to determine my painting through a certain style. My painting is close to the inner state of mind.

Guided by visual and physical memories of the "painting", using all the senses, transposing them through vibrations, transferring them to the canvas or paper, anxiously expecting, what will happen after the so-called each session, using the reason and knowledge of the process of analyzing the details, I continue to "fight" to the imaginary order. That’s a moment of decision, moving from one area to another, never with final outcome, victory or defeat. Simply vibrate. My choice is painting, hereinafter, process. I would say that I follow a natural instinct for survival, rather than flattering fashion or trend of imposed "ideas" about art. The observer is a participant, percipient of artist's energy and state (time) in which he worked, and they are comprehensive and extensive, social, natural, psychological, political. Fragment painting, each of its smallest part is flicker of state and relationships in the place, time and space in which we are located, where we operate, that energy is of a universal nature and it is part of all of us, nature and the universe.
