Artist Statement

Nightly abstract portrait of a girl in reflection:
"S.S.I.O. #5: Midnight reflection"

This expressive, colorful and surreal artwork is about thoughts and dreams that come a moment before sleep. A nocturnal revelation suddenly appears before your eyes and makes you remember about youthful love, about forgotten perturbations, about mistakes made. You should feel sorry for yourself, and understand that it is this life path that you have passed that has made you the person you are now.

Dimensions 70x50x2 cm.

“Sed Semel Insanivimus Omnes”-lat.: (“Sometimes we can all be insane”) series.
In this series, I explore the human soul, the feelings, and the emotions of people, their secret desires, drives, and vices. These artworks are a reflection of my continuous exploration of the surreal, the hidden, the unseen, the unseemly, the never-thought-about, the contemplative, the whimsical. The theme of each artwork is reflected in the style of painting, colors, and symbolic forms.
