My works are explication of the painting definition and variation about human being, showed with his advantages and disadvantages. Not only by the visual way but also in mental assessment. Behind every human stands a story–experiences, memories, habits, character and emotions. People express themselves by the look, fashion, attributes, gesture, which are showed in a very right moment and sometimes in humorous way. Human’s nature, as never-ending spring of inspirations, thrills me in all her aspects. Works arise very often by an impulse which release exuberant emotions harmonizing with our spirit. Clarity gives way to spontaneously constructed pictorial matter, where the important role is played by the gesture to build dynamic structures, often quite distant from the initial theme. In art delicacy, sensitivity and brutality can bear fruit equally convincing. Artworks are a unique combination of oil painting techniques and drawing possibilities which finally makes paintings unusual in their character. Paintings between expressive and impressionistic convention, are connected with traditional terms which makes a new fusion language of creation. My goal is to bring the viewer art experience and to involve him to think about the artwork, analyze and make his own interpretation about it.
