ARTIST STATEMENT – My aim as an artist
Art should make people conscious of unconscious things that may remain unconscious even consciously. The objective of my art is some sort of status report. It is the current representation of states experienced as a necessity. Everything that happens to me and makes me perceive.
The irrational reality my artwork present I wish to raise unconscious interest in areas of the modern art. I offer a sort of ‘literacy’ to the recipient with a degree of interactivity that expects the spectators be active: it will not let them become absorbed passively in the view, but will force them think.
The process of my artwork is a „war” of ideas, it is a constant and unsolvable conflict within me, during which layers appear and disappear on my canvas representing different atmospheres. Creation is not a linear process, instead a mixture of signs, symbols and atmospheres unbound of time.
I exclude and discard the surface, the didactic elements of the consumer society from the monotonous urban background noise, and through further analysis of the visual details of the mapped reality I put the emphasis on the basic symbols which are characterized by simultaneity and malleability.
