ARTIST statement
My paintings is always associated with movement. I try to move away from personal content in my work to gain a fresh look. I observe interactions and transformations in nature in order to find true spontaneity. I am interested in the physical and mental borderline states of people, the moments of transformation in society and nature, as well as the properties of natural surfaces and the boundaries of environments that generate distortion and the illusion in perception.
The artworks are in corporate collections of Benetton Group, Honeywell, Deutsche Bank, Wesso Link, Frankfurt brewery "Licher", VTB Bank and in private collections in the USA, Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Finland, Greece, Belgium and other countries.
