Kūrybos aprašymas

My work originates from and embodies a lifelong desire to be a creator. I am seeking emotional balance through the discovery of discernible patterns in an incomprehensible universe. I draw lines in order to define my role within an otherwise incorrigible space.Most of my work contains contrasts: balance and imbalance, planar focus and recession, patterns and unclear organization. I use shapes, splashes, geometric forms to manipulate space, although, at times my work becomes ambiguous and allusive. During the creative process I look for a new, different ways of visual expression and a wider range of measures forming compositions, in order to express a mysterious, logic disobeyed, disregard, or even disavowal of principles of beauty. Giving a new spatial and temporal characteristics, highlighting what's close to subconsciousness, pseudo-reality, perverse imagination and uncertainty is another point I am questioning in my creative process and final result. The goal is to alter the human perception of what we already know, and to strike curiosity.
