For me the process of making art is an ongoing attempt to translate and compress experience of existence into simple visual form.
As a staring point for a new piece functions both past lived life and the ever changing surronding conditions and feelings of the present. I work primarily without reference images or live models trying to get closer to human experience instead pursuing ”objective” reality.
Even though the goal to create complete summary of basically unlimited amount of information is obviously uttainable it nevertheless feels deeply meaningful. In addition to that process results frequently single art works that dispite all their imperfections I can define as finished.
Another central and unsolved problem that is characteristic to painting is question of creating a replica of three-dimensional reality into two-dimensional surface. I consider certain autonomic character, ability to exist independently without referring to outside of itself as a symbol or illusion essential aspect of an artwork. For in theory perfectly inclusive two dimensional image of three dimensional reality would require showing everything inside out, every layer of an object simultaneously laid side by side it results that in practice its necessary to choose something and leave out the most. Nevertheless cross-sectional approach utilizing even color planes instead of painted spatial illusions feels like the most truthful one.
In past couple of years my main technical approach has been digital drawing and sketching combined to realization of the final work using traditional media. I also work with three dimensional pieces that usually relate to previously done paintings dealing with similar themes from alternative points of views provided by different technique and materials. Other factors directing the work process are perceiving individual works as a part of exhibition set and in relation to the space they will be exhibited in.
