Statement
My art tends to focus on the nature of a subject.
Like emotions and energy caused by complementary colors; simplified geometry of a composition; map of wrinkles on old human faces; endless variety of green shades in a landscape. Whatever is the subject, I try to reach its quintessence. In as simple manner as possible.

Currently I express myself the fullest with three different styles, which sometimes permeate each other.
1. Ad libitum (it's also the name of my series) - loose, spontaneous painting, with features of representational art and impressionism.
2. Geometric art - driven by modernism, especially cubism and orphism.
3. Conceptual minimalism - abstract or non-objective art which is a visual ellipsis, pure essence of important to me features of a presented object, form, idea, emotion.
