Statement

Artist Statement

Art is my language of communication of my personal feelings, and experience, a visual statement of my philosophy and aesthetics; I search for beauty in an ordinary, in life's big and small events, in people around me. It is simple and complex at the same time, as I analyze it through my own perception, and my philosophy about values and meaningful relationships. For my compositions I use photo references or sketches, but often create from memory and by imagination. I characterize my style as a mixture of expressionism, and a conceptual with the addition of a superficial decorative elements. I experiment with combining organic and geometric forms and shapes to create a unique balance that conceptually represent for me the present society where the technology became an inseparable part of the organic life. In my mixed media works I use almost all art media that I could appropriate for a two-dimensional artwork by mixing, adding and subtracting them till I get the satisfying me expression. In oil painting I keep more traditional approach with multilayer paintings and glassing on canvas or a gessoed board. I like to work in the series that are grouped by style and the theme. Presently I am working on the series of artworks named “The composition of organic and inorganic forms in the expressive imagery.”
