“Painting is my main tool of describing the world, it serves its glorification or sometimes negation. I strive for simplification of form. In art, I value freedom above all – my own and that of the recipient. I avoid over intellectualization, I don’t pierce my art with a gibberish relay of socially or politically correct information. I also leave viewer with the freedom of interpretation. I don’t try to be literal, I leave most things unanswered often by choosing a suggestive title – still enigmatic, but slightly directing the viewer to my train of thought.”
„I would like my pictures to look as if a human being had passed between them, like a snail, leaving a trail of the human presence and memory trace of past events, as the snail leaves its slime.” Francis Bacon

Star Rituals, The Old School Art Residency, Gorna Lipnitsa, Bulgaria – 2014
This quote by Oscar Wilde intends to be a buckle for the project created during The Old School Art Residency in Gorna Lipnitsa.
Painting is my main tool of describing the world, it serves its glorification or sometimes negation. Simultaneously, my actions constitute of a record of emotions and observations, often subconscious, expressive, and very intuitive. I am interested in life, energy, the body and all biological processes…and fascinated by everything that has its own anatomy, weight, scale, heat. In a step-by-step process of transformation, body images are deformed and deconstructed so that they can be assembled anew. I strive for simplification of form.
Also in that case human body was a sign guide for me. Nudity tends to be anonymous, it reduces all individual features and becomes or can be a connection between parallel worlds and helps to carry out a ritual successfully, the aim of which is to discover the mystery of life or to be closer to something special, even for one moment.
