As an Artist I am an atmosphere builder. Impulses like personal handprint and painting gestures are my tools also when sculpting. Style of gestures varies according to the subject from unpersonal flat fields to organic meanderings : repeats, manias, automation and very slow or fast way to work are also my material. Likewise working after observation from landscape or other kind of model. My primary interest is visuality’s ability to trigger several conseptual layers in viewer’s mind . Material qualities of artwork, like pigments or surface structures are important for me as are choices of dimensions, color relations, tension and interlacement of areas in picture or sculpture.
