View on my present work
My subject matter is people and the mind itself - its dance in the realms of real and 'unreal'. Its need to dream unjustified as well as logically synthesise, to feel and to think, equally affecting one another. Its relationship to space and its communicative forces deviating from language.
When I reach out and interact with my paintings by observing unintentional or randomly choosing during this process of painting, - I liberate myself from any controlled idea, this leads to various determents and points of meaning if necessary.
In this poetic dance with my creating and allowing accidents to happen, - interaction is going both ways, it could be called as an engagement synergy within organic matter.
If there is this tension between figurative and abstract, neither one can be excluded - a defined story line in non-defined space, movement, stillness - it all coexists, equally contributing and constantly mutating around the human soul.
I would l like to evoke similar emotions and non - defined thoughts in the viewer.
