Artist Statement

Interests and Approach

I initiated and developed my art career exploring the conceptual, methodological and technological potentials of drawing and painting. My current investigation of the perceptive, cognitive and cultural aspects of visual phenomenology is focused on the various ways of the constitution, representation and interpretation of the individual notion of reality in the symbolic and narrative structures, primarily informed by the insights in physics, biology, evolutionary psychology and cognitive sciences.

My approach to art is conceptual and performative. It is motivated by the need for learning, for self-transformation and for overcoming the personal limitations and restraints through creative process.

Production, Methodology and Style

In production I combine interdisciplinary research, media experiments and generative procedures. My working methodology is based on the principles of reduction, clarification and optimization in making compact, efficient projects and presenting them concisely. I consider technical knowledge and skills as the prerequisites for a proper realization of artistic ideas, and I establish my relationship with the digital technology through critical understanding and challenging its creative potentials, (ideo)logical imperatives, shortcomings and contradictions.

I am stylistically open, with no ambition of creating a monolithic and recognizable poetic identity. The accent is on both the intuitive and rational play with the challenges of my imaginativeness, inventiveness, flexibility and humor.

Appreciation of Art

Although the epistemological and political impact of contemporary art is marginal, I believe that it should always question and interrogate the relevant aspects of human experience, knowledge, notions and relations, and offer that questioning to the audience in an intelligent, straightforward and unpretentious way.

Life itself is far more interesting than art or any other isolated realm of human experience, but art refreshes that simple insight by inspiring our specifically human need to transcend our circumstances.
