My art surrounds me - it is my life. It's about what's around, what I encounter every day. It is a sensual immersion in figurative associations and meanings. Penetration of philosophy and faith into being, of the unconscious into the conscious of human. My art is impulses from society.
I create with egg tempera using gessoed wood and gilding. It is through experiments with the technique that I convey the essence of the piece. I like when the egg tempera is aery and multi-layered, nuanced.
