            Artist Statement

Through the art creation I search for a New. I seek innovation and novelty. I experiment and do not close into one. Regardless chosen medium, I create abstract art. I express through drawing and painting, but also construct installation using ceramics in correlation with other medium.
Infinite means being created by abstract art provoke me to continuous exploration. Forming abstract shapes generates particular unobviousness, which I desire in my art. I am interested in creation of unsaid situations which do not exist in reality. I concentrate on a form and color. Furthermore, what exceptionally absorbs me is correlation between subtlety and sparkle as well as border between random and control. Observation of them being in various ranges of occurrence or different intensity is the subject of my researches. What inspires me is human imagination, thoughts, physics and architecture. 
When creating my abstracts I do not impose, but I give choice for feelings and thoughts. I try to extend my art receiver imagination by transmitting an impulse. It is not necessary for the observer to follow my way of projection as it could eliminate new interesting points of view. Every interpretation of my art is meaningful and legitimated for me. 
Main motivation for artistic thinking is my amazement when creation process leads me to unclearness. I make another artwork due to relationship which I detect with previous or as an aspiration to create new one. My artistic activity follows from the need of formation and molding but also from the need of self-expression. By creating from the desire of composing my own reality, I strive for my recipient’s sensitivity development. My ambition is to give an alternative to existing world. 
Art is the meaning of my life.
