◂ about series ▸

In the "Wings" series only one shape was consciously chosen. Widespread wings of a butterfly, which can be freely filled. The theme of movement inside a static form is a uniting moment of the “Wings” series. The changing rhythm of substance transformation rebith and movement is felt everywhere and different in all the works of the series. Inside the wings can be recognized shades of shapes, traces of material objects. Out of the chaos thriugh the artist that gives the impulse of birth - the shape gains harmony of variety and becomes a whole thing.

The changes of multidimensional images create a metaphor of artistic languages that gives a special emotional intensity and plastic in paintings.

The objective nature of reality is revealed in those series. The inner structure and dynamic collisions are depicted there, creating a unique system of symbols that form a map of reality.

The painting of the Wings series was nominated in the "Imago Mundi" competition of the Benetton Foundation.
