For me painting is a spiritual act, an inner conviction and a desire to abstract essence beyond the material world. My approach is based on my belief in the vigor and values of the world in nature, in the aspects of grandeur and magnificence. I gain benefit from the power of painting to transcend the experience of actual encounters, to open space of fantasy, which is my ultimate goal to construct particular scenes to relate in some ways to my subjective experience that would consequently trigger my particular feelings and associations. The type of painting that I do, is abstract expressionism that complexly articulates ‘objectivity’ with personal vision. This responds to more spiritual dimensions of the experience of environment, in the sense defined by Lippard as ‘living the ordinary while sensing extraordinary’. Same here in my paintings, my sense of being a part of something beyond my personal experience is being brought into play.
My choice of subject comes from my imagination coupled with my subjective emotional expression, the unknown divine journey of transformation and the idea of transcending humankind’s limitations. My works invite a contemplative response, and involve something more sublime which pertains to my subjective experience. The uneasiness in my works is symptomatic of a longing for an unrecoverable past in which I think I had more integrated inter-relation.
