Artist's statement

As an artist, I am focused on the modern world that man has created as an integral part of it, his interactions with surrounding forms and his place among them, his perception of man himself as a form and the issue of the possibility of such a conception. I’m convinced that our everyday lives are inseparably linked to a conception or understanding of who we are. In the spaces that we create, we sleep, walk, eat, love, hate, await a miracle, raise children, cultivate flowers, and die. Every time I create a new work, I strive to perceive human life in a specific moment and in a specific space that I have constructed.
 
Usually I work in several media, but I establish painting as the base. Painting is integrated into installations, sculptures merge into painting, video allows us to fill with real life a medium that, in essence, isn’t a part of real life. In my works, I often use white colored acrylic paints as symbols of purity of architectural solutions, neon colors as striking sparkles on the body and the monochrome image of modern architecture, precisely apportioned down to the tiniest of details.
