We live in a hard time - a period of materialism, capitalism, momentary pleasures and extreme individualism. It is an era on which the outrageous becomes " the new normal" and our capacity to get shocked by tragic events becomes muted. Crisis prevails, new problems arise and a careless policy syncs into a society inured to the ruthless, immoral behaviour we experience or read about on a daily basis. A global epidemic has taken hold of our society: the indifference to suffering and needs of others.

One of the main objectives of my work is to show dualism between chaos and perfect symmetry and reflect emotions.

Compelled by this reality, I create an art that questions these problems and reflects on our lack of social awareness and compassionate action.

I reflect reality like a dream, which is also a reflection of real life. Sensations, images, ideas, concepts, thoughts, emotions and feelings reflect objective reality experiences. They express a subjective attitude of man to objects and phenomena of reality.

Where the balance of illusion and reality is in equality, there arises a peace that brings us to peace. We with love a make to dream, then can grow within the soul to become the supreme factor which determines the meaning of a person's life. We are all capable of great change and emotional transition.

Nature that awakens our souls to the vast inner freedom, allows us to give up time and space. It is a powerful source of knowledge, which through communication reveals its secrets to a person and makes it more sensitive to the world around him.

 After all, a person's ability to see around him, makes perfect peace in his soul and a sense of oneness with nature, helps to understand himself and others better.

Through my work, I seek to reveal the invisible to the eyes of the indifferent person: the need and thirst for a social change. To paint is to reflect, to collect feelings, memories and to see what further insights I may glean from them. I want to stop time for people – to let them bask in the eternity of the present moment, and to celebrate it.
