ARTISTIC STATEMENT             

Shapes are precisely delimited and they have specific meanings in my works. My symbol system is built from emblematic shapes and colours associated with them. My formula for creating series and compositions: joining shapes and colours based on structure and their abstract meaning. I'm aiming to build aligned, considered constructions. I use simple, plane shapes. I put my ideas into practice after long study, I experience with different materials and levels of depiction. After organising impressions, experiences, and collected data I observe relations and interactions. This kind of concise expression of correlations takes form in my mind during this process.
