It is important to me to be here and now, to let myself feel. The environment in which I live in, whatever that would be – nature or city – shrinks to match capabilities of my senses and becomes the background for happenings of consciousness. I merge with that environment: I connect from within with the world, it‘s bodies, I am not beside them, I am with them. I create the opportunity for myself to know the Self and the being in general. The knowing starts even before verbalizing peace, letting to feel it physiologically through observing, touching, and listening. This very real involvement with the world becomes something that I need to know and conceptualize the most. It is sensual perception – the base strategy for all creation. For me creativity is observation of any regular day playgrounds.

Like in the sandbox I glue images and visions which are born from analysis of relations with me and others. In my paintings I create portraits of a person’s psychological condition which is embodied to objects that are turned into metaphors. Melancholic contemplations, open nerve, playground. Through emotional differences I analyze the constant collisions of noise and silence, seeking the possibilities of understanding in the unknown truth.
