“An idea forced on my mind is the OCD urge to birth living shadow of what mind has conjured. It is some kind of uncanny wonder that I have no choice but labour to life. I paint at night when life is at sleep and only ghosts of my unconscious are roaming free coercing my hand. I cannot stop until painting is timelessly alive then I sit back to observe how it overtakes my soul and surprises me with its forever destined marvels carved in paint incessantly surprising with the question what a hell is this and feeling of doubting conceit”
In truth, I am a conceptualist. I paint my ideas out of random, well-thought-out conclusions from the topics I care to study and observe with life-infused emotional baggage I seem to be unable to shake. My attempts are the exercise of transforming my mind's visual content into a personal form of art practice as an explanation of what my mind has conjured, staying firmly outside of art history. On this website, you can view some of my tug of war. Enjoy!
Painting as a visual language is my way of understanding this world and all its mysticism. I am continually captivated by the ideas and transcendence of them into reality as sure as dreams are fetching certainty. I use colour as a powerful metaphor to induce life into this fallen world.
I had good fortune to experience working at Stiepan Bezijak studio where I fall in love with the visual art and painting. The art production process made a deep impression. Creating art begins from an inspired idea to hand drawing, to technical sketch, up to the execution into a complete painting. For me, execution is the magical part of the process - taking the project of the paper and making it real.
