The processes of growth, maturation, corrosion and erosion that shape the world are accompanied by extraordinary coloristic sensations, so that the eyes of those who are prepared to gaze at the matter for a long time will experience excitement stirred by colorful relations of microscopic and macroscopic worlds. In pure matter, particularly ones coming from great geological depths, the passage of time is as visible as a clear visual record. Enchanted by the complexity of mineral structures that date as far back to the dawn of time, we can define the matter as a substance of time and cannot but trust its infallible visuality.
And just as corals and solid sediments form ancient bronze statue found at the sea bed become part of that very bottom, so do the brush and spatula strokes in the quest for spontaneous visual expression, freely negating the recognizable form of the painted character. In search of the spirit of the matter through daring underpainting and radical transformations, distinctive portraits of time are created. They demonstrate the disappearance of ideals, the form that crumbles only to be restored to its original condition - the realm of shapelessness.
Beneath the surface of a once finished painting, like geological strata are layers of color visible only in traces. In order to preserve the evidence of processes that remain trapped in the depths, I take photographs of the changes trying to capture the course of creation. These shots, when looked at in chronological order, provide a quick insight into a slow and gradual process of painting that takes many months.
