Into the Forest
Bankside Gallery: Rising Artists, Jackson's Painting Prize 2023
100 x 100 cm
“For many years now, nature has been the main theme of my paintings. These are no conventional landscapes, they are ‘portraits’ of forest, trees, water, earth, grass. To paint, following my intuition, to depict nature in the light of my personal sensations is the only way I can see new values and create new art.
My paintings are like stories about nature, about the value of nature, about the proximity of men and nature. When depicting nature, I wish to emphasize the importance of the simple things. It is a kind of a record of sensations and reflection, of colourful as well as almost forgotten memories.”
