About

Drawing has always been for me the space of liberty and free expression. Later, architecture and teaching became more important than that great passion of mine and drawing became merely the means of project expression and a record of reality I recreated or created. Fortunately, not entirely. Drawing is still my sanctuary, space of showing my emotions and finding silence.

I cannot function without a pencil. It does not matter how soft or thick it is, it should only submit to the hand: light - smoothly, hard - brutally. The joy is similar to that when you touch the piano keys and produce sounds: piano, forte, staccato, legato, etc. Between white and black there are so many shades, semitones and nuances. Sometimes there is a subtle gradation, more often - a contrast: softly - hard, organically - geometrically, dynamically - statically, a border - no border. Permeation, stratifying, condensation allows building the space of a drawing and the space of imagination.

The exhibited works are the result of experiments with several different materials used as a drawing medium.The original drawings printed on textiles and plexiglass became new objects, autonomous works of art. The transparent flags are creating background, a stage for actors - the portraits looking at the four corners of the world - glowing forms resemble Proto-Slavic sculptures.
