Using simple symbology I am showing individuals in various emotional and social situations. Small circles representing individual persons are placed on an expressive background demonstrating outside world. Spills, splashes and geometric lines create an interconnected energy field. These action and gestic elements give the paintings (for me) necessary dynamics and animality. Their diversity, sometimes chaotic, symbolizes today's complicated times. All interventions on canvas (imprinting, scratching, engraving, splashing) are done according the plan; everything is subject to specified intent. Every centimetre of the painting is essential; every detail or just a minor sector. We can talk about certain controlled freedom of painting. The aim of the wild creation process is to achieve a specific harmony in the picture. Compositional and aesthetic balance is priority; all parts and colours should form a unified, visually interesting complex.
