“Creativity to me is a bridge between the real image and dreams. They are connected or separated by light. Dulled by morning sun or evening fog, permeating through a slot or a gap between curtains. Fragile, omnipresent. Light is not possible without a shadow.

Light and shadow – their relationship, their interaction with color is the object of my observation and a puzzle that I am trying to solve. The desire to paint is born out of a desire to hide in a room longing for the light, to sharpen the blade of softness by touching canvas with the brush. Gently and quietly in order not to scare anyone. To glow. Silhouettes of clear thought and blurred images. Without sunglasses, walking barefoot on the lake, asking someone to give me a Tulip, and going blind from the green glow in the evening of a green day.

Soaking up summer colors, watching orange rain, trying to sort clouds and the wonder of the world, which is blue like an orange. I’m still playing “hide and seek” with colors. They feel crazy like little naughty girlfriends.They surround me everywhere and always accompany me. Even in dreams.”
