We live in the world where everything is inconstant and changing, moving and interconnecting. The life is very complicated and simple at the same time. There is always chaos and order.
My art and my style grow out of my perception of the reality as a versatile combination of precision and spontaneity, fluency and precipitancy, tension and harmony, conflict and balance.
In my works I appeal to emotional and spiritual dimensions. Nowadays when our minds are overloaded with tons of information, social networks, news, it is very important just to make a stop and to open the eyes and see the world around, listen to it, feel it. We can see and feel so many things, when we tune ourselves for that.
When we are connected with the world through our souls, we start moving in the Flow together with everything around and find out our personal meanings and answers.
The main constructive element in my paintings is the line, similar to isolines on the maps. I call them ‘iSOULines’ because they reveal the energy of inner tension and movement of the sensations born within the flow. The canvas becomes the map.
Using traditional fine art media like oil paints and focusing on classical landscape images I try to create dynamic, voluminous and flowing world. The trees, the oceans, the lakes, wind, fire… The real things. But if we observe these phenomena with all our senses, they open for us their metaphorical essence and acquire universal, mythological characteristics.
