Statement

At the moment I paint portraits, but there is a kind of ambiguity in it. The appearance of the figures has often symbolic value, so there are no faces, no eyes, they are "backside" portraits, there are not "real" portraits. 

Painting is my language, though my paintings are based on photography. But it is very important that my work is "made by hand" and not only by hand - it involves everything in me: receptivity, feeling, thought, sensibility and the painting skill. The artificial image, as the photograph, is just really not sufficient for me to express the vulnerability of being. As I paint fairly intuitive, I newer know what will be end of the process. The formal solutions I choose for the images, are kept simple to intensify the impact. I'm deliberately "slowing down" formally, in search for the simple stable elements to facilitate sincere focus. I use quiet colors in limited palette to support the image and not to distract from it. 

In the matter of fact, the paintings are about human condition, the essence of all creation.

That is how it is looks from my side, the other side of the painting's life is in the eye of the beholder.
