I concentrate on classical painting both in terms of technique (oil, canvas, exceptionally acrylic) and themes (figural motives, portrait). However, I aim to push the “classical” expression a little further – in a painting, I look for harmony between the everyday (the depiction of reality) and the idea of the everyday which, in reality, are two elements that are not so easily reconciled. In short, I learn to turn possibility into banality and to portray it as such in painting. I try to maintain a certain simplicity and modesty, not superficially and with pathos, but rather by keeping a healthy distance from the author’s standpoint. I am interested in simple stories of individual characters that I depict (sometimes they are fictional). I thus place them in objective situations that should reflect the delirium of the moment when one is deeply moved by something he is incapable of bearing emotionally or rationally.
