Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“My art is an expression of personal experiences and observations, but it does not exist apart from reality.”

“Art is a corner of creation seen through a temperament” - Emile Zola

The painting "Disappearance" touches on the theme of death and its closeness. It evokes a lot of reflection with an existential, but also very romantic tint. In this work I wanted to draw attention to the harmony of scarcity, deficiency and wholeness.

I consider myself a contemporary figurative artist, because I do not limit myself to a specific field of art, such as painting, sculpture or happenings, they are all important to me and they are all connected by one subject – human.

Perception

Mixed Media

"Perception". Among the multiplicity of meanings, we choose what we want to see. It is only a scrap of the reality that surrounds us, but completely ours.

Most often, however, I focus on creating three-dimensional paintings with my own technique using papier-mâché, canvas and oil paint. Here each figure takes their own pose for depiction of specified social problems. As an artist, I’m fascinated by existential mechanisms and emotions, such as struggle, strength, fear, but also freedom, love, and eroticism, as they dynamically enter into dialogue with history, society and human individuality.

“At some point, after many attempts, I managed to put sculpture and painting together.”

My paintings are covered mainly with white paint to emphasize the light and shadow, thanks to which the artworks gain some kind of brightness / transparency and the viewer focuses on the form and chiaroscuro.

“My paintings became a kind of a display case, in which I placed a carefully modeled, three-dimensional image of a human being – however, not taken from ordinary vision, but experienced by me in my own way, according to my personal sensitivity.”

Currently, the subject of my works deals with the issues of beauty, spirituality and empathy. It also gained symbolic saturation. The paintings became a kind of a display case, in which I placed a carefully modeled, three-dimensional image of a human being, however not taken from ordinary vision, but experienced by me in my own way, according to my personal sensitivity.
