Two Sides of Truth

Jackson’s Painting Prize 2020
130 x 150 cm

“This artwork, just as all my other botanical theme paintings, is a symbolic family relation depiction. I am keen on finding symbolic family member situation similarities in nature’s forms- how plant character tells stories so similar to human relationships.

Sometimes a tiny ray of light on leaf gives the exact feeling as mild, warm words from your beloved ones; or the opposite. Nature and light are two most inspiring things for me. For motif seeking I regularly visit botanical gardens around Europe.”
