Furniture, utensils, devices, bric-à-brac - all these miscellaneous items while away our nearest
space. We are collecting these things, we are finding place for them, we are cramming them around us, no matter whether we need them, or we find them entirely useless. Sometimes we get rid of some in order to replace them with new items. We are accompanied by them, sometimes throughout our entire life, and they acquire exceptional power. They are tacit witnesses of our being, our feelings, good and bad, our desires, joys, anxieties. They are reminding us of something, or letting us forget.
This is what I am trying to relate through my paintings: to depict our surroundings using surrealist form and choosing colours conservatively. I am depicting our own peculiarities and drollery by creating bizarre shapes. This form of light surrealism, I dare say, seems to be most adequate to express my thoughts of the surrounding world.
My paintings, I dare say, betray my fascination with masterpieces of Dutch and Italian painters.
The art of Rembrandt, Hals, Titian and great many other painters of the period, is for me
an example of how to make use of brush, colour structure and subject.
