"I have a wish. I want to be able to look upon today's world without any skepticism or doubts. I want to believe that our everyday visual perception isn't influenced by ideologies or power. I wish to contribute to the dialogue about virtuality and fast pace in our lives with something utterly authentic - a piece of viewer's own imagination. Painting has been reclaiming its autonomous domain. Living in era of the virtual, of media fatigue and visual overflow, we start to see real value in things that are asking for their own place and time.
In my line of work, I conduct research on abstract painting. This kind of painting is challenging the viewers to slow down and use their own imagination. There is a moment when it expands into space and creates environment, in which the viewers eventually become a part of the art piece."
