...Intuition and an intense awareness of what is seen are the key components here, not only visually, but with all available senses. It is hard for me to define what exactly influences me - it is rather a sum of many separate elements that are around me and with whom I come into contact. The nature is very important though. When it comes to art, it is the cave paintings and antique frescoes, but also the poster remains that can be often found in the city. They have something from the fragmental, the lost. At the same time, these “remains” are part of something bigger and as fragments become all the more important because they are practically the only carriers of the original information. It is a kind of abstraction and selection. To me it is especially important that my work continues to evolve and that its strength and quality increase. With quality I mean, for example, that the paintings express sensitivity and vitality, a kind of feedback from the lived or the experienced. The works are included in series. They show different ways of approach in the process of painting.
