Artist Statement

portfolio_galleria_BC_1cAs an artist, I seek to create dramatic impressions through strong contrast, vibrant colours, dense mass of paint and various textures.Recently, I have concentrated on more abstract painting, which is my expression of the contemplation of life and the reflection of our inner world. My art  is about feelings and emotions which everyone holds deep inside; about dreams and hope…about passion and joy….about loneliness, fear and loss.

The layers of paint on canvas through colours, textures and shapes articulate the essence of our abstract thoughts and feelings. There are some elements of my paintings formed by “uncontrolled paint movements”.  Allowing paint to go its own way, to naturally fill the canvas  add a unique, unexpected element to my work. It is like in life, there is always a hint of mystery…you never know what it can bring or take away.

Earlier works were more focused on abstract and semi-abstract forms inspired by the beauty of nature and the surrounding landscape. By working mostly from memory, I was transforming realistic scenes into an abstract combination of solid forms. These forms were broken by a layer of transparent paint and strong marks, which metamorphosed from what was landscape into much more undefined scenes.
