Artist's Work

In the Depth

    Work introduction

    I have been working in the field of ceramics for more than twenty
    As an artist I have always observed people and their environment.
    It is important for me to reveal their complex relationships that are
    influenced by the environment, and as the outcome of these
    relationships – people’s egocentricity, vanity and the need for
    incarnation, as well as their constant desire to regain internal structured
    order and peace.
    Universal problems of humanity matter for me more than those
    of a concrete person. Therefore, I choose abstract forms, full of diverse
    metaphors and symbols. These people, crouched, broken by their lives,
    chained by their own inner conflicts, are similar to each of us in one
    way or another: our natural moral disposition to reflect on our own
    experience and close ourselves in the shell of fear and anxiety. Such
    abstract forms evoke our imagination deeper and make us think, trying
    to find answers to diverse existential questions.
    I have always looked at the human shape from a different angle,
    trying to search for new forms, lines, colours and technological
    solutions. In the process of creation, when I start working on a new
    project, other new works, the variations of the latter one, are often born.
    These variations and new ideas perfectly fit into the overall
    composition, which I pay a special interest to: I catch and draw the
    outer and inner lines of the sculpture with different sculptural means. I
    strive for the plasticity in the movement of the form, its flow, when one
    figure passes one another and together their whole leaves the
    impression of three figures. Therefore, it becomes very important to
    choose plastic clay masses professionally, as well as monochromatic
    surfaces that are able to convey those impressions.
