Artist Statement

My main interest in painting is human being and the element that makes them a living being. The dual human nature, full of contradictions, stretching between the tendency to fall and the will to do good, forces reflection, the search for truth and asking questions on carnality, psyche, soul and spirit. I infiltrate his inner world, investigating his place in the surrounding environment, the heterogenity of his nature and the property of his being. I play with the form by containing the human body in a specific context in the picture, or juxtapose with specific attributes, sometimes banal or even taken out of the world of absurdity. A characteristic element of some of the paintings are fragments of works from past eras incorporated into them – in the form of a background, an attribute or as a composite element with the character itself. The works that I choose, even though they are only objects, seem alive to me as bearing witness to the thoughts of their authors and the times in which they were created. By appropriating fragments of these works, I estabilish a kind of dialogue with their authors, transferring the inseparable thought behind those paintings to its own canvas. At the same time, placing those works in a completely new context, I deprive them of their original meaning, transform them into an artifact, introduce ambiguity. The tensions, ambiguities or disturbing juxtapositions that I create are like those of the world around us – everyone sees what they want to see, still touching upon the same Truth.
