The reason to create the picture can be anything you want))) Emotions, feelings, sounds.... And of course all I see. The combination of colors, shapes, lines in the world around me. Starts a kind of internal dialogue and emotional content directly to the external environment. When you just feel part of this space. And it becomes a place of crisis from real to the abstract image, from sound to color, from drawing to painting. Becoming a reliable image of reality, a whole new world that is the result of rethinking. Of course, I admire the realism. But more interesting for me to create something new than simply to depict what I see. When there is an opportunity to ask questions: "what if......" and get the answers. I work with many materials. But my love is oil. I'm just fascinated by this paint, its plasticity and fluidity. The volume and texture of coats of paint is the driving force and structure of my paintings. This is the beginning, along with the colors and shades specified in the palette - the dance of the brush or palette knife over the surface. I let myself go, freely and instinctively stroking the canvas, allowing the lines, shapes and stains to create recognizable images.
