Universal thoughts and emotions

Trough my art I mostly express universal thoughts and emotions. I focus on positive and optimistic aspect. I am looking for fun and humor, joy and bliss both in everyday circumstances and in broader plan. This is how, in fact, I see, feel and comprehend spirituality and evolving of the planet energy. I am not eschewing so called obstacles; I usually transform them by positive approach. I express that attitude in my art.

In my statement it is important to say that I use pure colors and universal symbols in various combinations to express my delight with life in general and its manifestations in visible and invisible realms and dimensions. Sometimes I point to some actual event, or some social issue. I use the elements of visual art language to express my reactions, actions, observations, contemplation, attitudes. They can be either universal or intimate, private.

Non-linear timeless reality

An important part of my artist statement is that I like my art not to be linear or descriptive or narrative. I don’t merely illustrate some scene that I observe, reminiscence or idea that I have on my mind. Even when I use a camera, the result is not purely illustrative or descriptive. Also, timeless reality is present in the majority of my artworks. I can’t possibly run away from my non-linear timeless core and I am aware of that. You can not observe my art work just moving from the point A to the point B, and then proceed to the point C and so on. It has to be observed simultaneously and freely.

I don’t try to be likable

I don’t involve premeditation in my art, or in my life. I follow my gut instincts and intuition and passion from my heart. Sometimes it is not very practical or profitable. So what? I don’t have any intention to impress or please critics or art audience. I don’t expect a medal for what I am doing in any area, especially in art. I just follow my strong inspiration and go with the powerful energetic flow. This is me, I am what I am. I don’t pretend to be somebody else. This is me and my artist statement tells more about it.

I am pretty dashing and sharp, and my art is not immune to that. I have intense emotions and reactions. I can’t pretend to be other then that and act differently in my art. I love truth and justice and I am learning how to improve more and see that there is always present universal justice and that everything is well.

I love so many beautiful things. Although I am a productive artist, I just can’t manage to have enough time to express this entire enormous amount of energy. I am not Super(wo)man yet. But, I keep trying.

So, I can tell that universal love and strong energy flow constitute the general course of me and my art. This is me. This is my artist statement.
