The weather that we’re taking with us’ is a series of paintings, created within last year, during the period when only the inner strength could help me be calm and confident. The pandemic period was stressful for everyone and each of us had to suffer and learn something new.

About

The world will not be the same as it was, something definitely has changed, but life goes on. Lockdown caught me in the middle of the road, when we have just moved, everything was new and nothing was clear. The weather scared me, dark clouds, strong storms, howls of the night wind… I was scared, but in the morning there would be a new day, new hopes, new rays of sunshine and I calmed down. I painted a lot, for me this was the only way to go forward, to think optimistically. Themes came like dreams, autumn would change into spring, horses were followed by ballerinas... While painting spring I was thinking of the trees that bloom without knowing its fruits. While painting autumn I was thinking of trees that lose their leaves and don’t oppose the life cycle of nature. I’m also exhibiting a series of paintings, which I started a few years ago, but I finished just now. Since then, only now, I have the same feeling and desire to get out into the rain. My palette covers the whole spectrum of possible colours, I merge with the vibrancy of strong colour shades and I enjoy my noble, silver gray. I’m optimistic, and even in my darkest paintings, at least a drop of clear blue appears, as a hope, as a ray of sunshine on the most intense day. A painting is like a door to another world, it’s like a discussion between the artist, the subject and the admirer, like a start of a long and beautiful journey. When I paint, I have a dialogue with my characters and through them - with you.
