"As part of daily activities and thoughts there is a constant level of existence which is pure sensation. I want to transform these sensations which are sometimes calm and sometimes explosive, sometimes transparent and sometimes opaque into something larger than myself. To connect that transient feeling into tangible and lasting object I chose painting as my 'Tool'. In trying to capture impalpable sensations and inside feelings my painting becomes abstract and expressive. To emphasize expressiveness I use different types of strong and weak brushstrokes and a flickering rhythm of movement. Often times my painting has many layers of screens and transparent and translucent plexiglass to give the feeling of mystery which reflects unknown veiled things in the world."
