I am obsessed with the cells signals of living entities. The starting point of everything.
I am intrigued by how, why and what for, we all became forms for a short journey on the road to decay.
I try to portray the way I see the whole, a bit out of focus and multiple layers, dreamlike images. It's difficult for me to talk about art. I can only say that effects me on a visceral level, simply a human instinct from within. I feel art, it has been haunting me since I can remember, this urge to express myself freely, a way of communicating my ideas.
My job is to express myself and in that process to learn a bit more about the self, the surface of my work is not an objective space to express conceptual ideas, composing my pieces is not an intellectual, premeditated activity but an affective one.
I feel compelled to examine where i fit into all of this.
Is it even possible to know that?
"Painting for me is a way of questioning images, where visible objects with a secret depth appear to reveal a kind of irrational truth. The paintings operate as a bridge, a transitional space that evokes an inner world".
For me, painting enables encounters with an inner world that comes to life in the creation and viewing of a work of art. Existing at the edge of consciousness this inner space is complex and fluid, as it touches upon the enigma that is subjectivity itself. In my work I incorporate an individual approach to the tradition of abstract painting, drawing as much on unique perceptions of colour, space, texture, volume and light as on art history. Quietly contemplative and discerning, these works exist on a level where definitions are suspended in favour of a generous and open-ended exploration.
For my first solo show in Czech Republic I worked with an intriguing mix of abstraction and figuration so that in some paintings landscapes and organic forms are evoked, while in others, interlocked elements jostle, connect and dissolve.
I deliberately kept my work in creative flux so that it is open to interpretation and avoids the habits of a signature style and premature resolution.
