Drawing is a fundamental type of expression: it’s a trace left on the piece of paper, never preprogrammed, planned or prebuilt. It comes suddenly – the desire to leave a trace. Feelings, everyday life, the moment, mood have a great influence on my hand direction, the tilt and pressure of my hand-held tool.
Through the line’s nature and the drawing gesture I’m trying to convey the feelings which are difficult or even impossible to express with words. When I look at my drawings in retrospect I can see lifelines, weekdays interleaved by exceptional days, the recurrent patterns of our life, the secret of our future, the horizon… I also see barcodes, cardiograms, handwriting, notation… And you? What do you see?
A few years ago I realised that my painting is running essentially in two abstract fields. Both are explorations into colour, texture, mark making and painting matter. One of them is more organized. The main effort is concentrated on choosing the color and adopting it to its “biological” form, not dissimilar to creating a DNA structure. The painting is, however, not precisely designed at the start point and there is a lot of space for unplanned decisions during the process.
