In my own skin
""I would like to present myself with this exhibition with a series of oil paintings, which have been made in the past years.
While I am painting, I am trying to generate a parallel world as a kind of poetic response to the questions by which I have been incited, provoked, obsessed with. In the course of painting, even before a painting appears as a vision, as an act of recognizing the shapes of iconographic signs, revelations of artistic facts happen to me owing to which I establish the bond between experience and intuition in an eternal game of known and unknown.
These responses are connected with my cognition about the outside world and painting in general but yet mostly with the acceptance of painting as an intimate act of expression.
Music, that is music elements of rhythm, represent a constant of my working process, therefore this time I made a step closer and by listening attentively to the lyric part of my being I selected paintings for this exhibition."
