Me 2023

“My journey begins with a pictorial idea, based on a geographical location. It begins by observing, by lines and spots created directly on the canvas. The main idea is preserved in the studio, but a process of disconnection from the geographical place begins, and while destroying and neutralizing something else is created.

The viewer can experience the painting and focus on molecular units, like looking through a microscope at items that form a uniform, sensual and abstract fabric, or observe from a distance and experience a struggle. The harmonious coloring is calculated in an almost scientific way—dots, lines, painted stripes, everything is woven into the fabric of the painting and ultimately creates a uniform work of art that is linked deeply to reality.”
