ARTIST STATEMENT

"My paintings depicting nature: that surrounds us, the micro- and macrososmos and human nature that is like immense space. Human is like space, forever changing energy fields: atoms as our blood circulation, as galaxies originate and stars decline, floating into ash inside. We are, as ash of stars, transmitting light....
