ARTIST STATEMENT

I was shaped by a changing reality. Several economic, maybe even philosophical, epochs. And a specific place on earth, aggressive nature and expressive culture towards which it is impossible to be indifferent. There I began to see ordinary BEAUTY and look for it in all aspects of existence. Many years, many changes. The sentiments and awareness of the collapsing (despite modifications) of such a laboriously built model remained. I understand the inevitability of changes resulting from development (nature), but I also know that I do not have to follow all of them or even accept them. They exist, it is their right – nature. Happiness and a curse of future generations.
Perhaps now the effects of my work are only a reflection on the passing, a reflection so unfashionable. But I still want them to have a form that is soul-friendly and pleasing to the eye. Are they also meant to serve you? It would be good if they cooled down bad emotions, that they would help to distinguish them at all. That they would give an impulse to look from other than our only right side. Otherwise, only Eve will remain alone.
After some time:
It will. Eva will have it all, and this “all” will be perfectly balanced, maybe “0-1” and stable. Will she then be as lonely as Adam used to be?
