I think that my style is emotional, but calming, reduced in shape and color. Building a stories, but pointing at illusion, often unveiling the materiality of paints. Showing the individuals, but talking about a common human experiences. I like playing with presented characters and care about their “intimate anonymity“. Viewers are probably forced to dive into depicted situation with their own interpretation, emotions reflected in the mirror of the painting. The psychological openness of my works is crucial. I continuously work on the idea of the connections and the common fields between people. I try to express something about sensing, not only through the conscious or rational part of us, but also through our collective unconscious.
