ARTIST STATEMENT

The source of my work is my constant fascination with Nature, in its pantheistic understanding, as the Absolute. In my works I take two perspectives. The first concerns the meta-istota of Nature, complicated and elusive, inaccessible to human cognition. The second is the tangible and real layer of human experience. By combining these two perspectives, I create a case study of Man, focusing directly on his individual attitude to the surrounding reality, which is his own area only.
