From Interview – for Art Habens Art Review, August 2017:

In a broader perspective, the view from a distance on my work: I see that this is an efforts, that takes time; which require the constant development: of knowledge, ability, perceptive functions, cognitive functions, sensory functions, etc; painting practice requires time.

My work in painting includes different Cycles:

Forest (1996-2001), Reflexion (1997-2006), Grass (2002-2006), Flowers (from 2006 onward), Sea and Waves (2007-2010), Figures (from 2010 onward), Light (from 2014 onward), Cycle City (from 2013 onward).

Since 2010, my work is focused mostly on figural art. Through years 2010-2014 I have primarily created sketches of figural motifs which with time grouped into different Cycles (Cycle Two, Cycle Figures, Cycle Dialogues etc.) and projecting themes such as: relations, different phases of life, time and changes, gender differences, body constitution, human work, function and activity and criticism of society like in the Cycle Petty Bourgeois. Some of the sketches are also relating to the places I have visited while others are based on literary motifs from example the ones from Iliad.

In 2010, I started a series of paintings – sketches on the theme of places, structures and path all conected with people, human. First I was mainly interested in the constitution of the city, the core of the dialogue and the meeting space between people. From that they were later developed sketches and paintings from the Cycle City.
