My painting results from fascination with corroded, damaged, defective surfaces, with signs of use and passing time.
I do not aim to reproduce these surfaces naturalistically in my paintings, but to imitate the processes leading to their destruction. Creative expression – an expression of emotions and a controlled series of intuitive actions – leads to the creation of paintings that are surprising and unpredictable, even for me as their creator.
The authenticity of the resulting form, its texture and structure with its imperfections and severity, not embellished, autonomous, without reference to a specific reality, is achieved in several stages, following the principle of paint, wash, paint. The creation is a painting experiment, a dialogue of the artist with his emerging painting.
When I am facing the white canvas I have no preconceived idea of the painting that will come into existence; I do not know what it will look like in the end.
Finishing a painting fills me with the excitement of an explorer, with a sense of joy of discovering and creating something new, something that opens unknown and unexpected areas of my imagination.
