„I create forms exploding with joyful movement, an arrangement of waves and pulsation.
What emerges is a living entity with its own rhythm, impulse and motion.
I like space in my works, a painting’s background is not void, it’s a space – a space for the breath of painting. Without this space, there would be no harmony, no stability and no balance in the movement and the rhythm of an artwork. Everything is a matter of motion, rhythm and space. Colourful forms reveal the space and, thanks to them, white vibrates and radiates, the space is alive and opens for infinity.
When I paint, transferring my art to the canvas, it exudes internal joy, which I call „my lyrical elation”, a strong emotion creating a space filled with poetry and magic…
I can feel I become free and open for things that are beautiful, good and great.
I know that one can find freedom at any time and, in order to take risks, it’s enough to as Hokusai said combine and intensively use the short moments out of which an artwork will be created, a dazzling, amazing experience. …that I wish to everyone viewing my pictures…”
