ARTIST STATEMENT

The contact, interaction, and interpenetration of such essences as matter and spirit is the area where the focus of my understanding and deep experience through art is directed.  

Synthesizing paintings, sculptures, audiovisual series, light-color installations and objects into a single semantic form, I strive to image the ideal essence of the universe, the unity of eternal matter and pure spirit, being outside of time, where the future, past and present are dissolved in a single stream. Through the synthesis of translucent colorful surfaces and three-dimensional shimmering forms, the combination of light and color, I create an image of a single, indivisible space, where the spirit grows in matter, solidifies in form, and flows with light. In this shimmering space, there is no time, no extension, and all earthly concepts of form are not acceptable here. This is a super-volume, absolute fullness, where light thickens and flows like water, objects are devoid of scale ratio, and matter is the thinnest transparent film that trembles on the surface. Human faces eternity. Time is slow and thickened, light slowly flows through the leaves. External eventfulness stopped. A stream of transparent shadows and highlights flows solemn and serene.
