Artist’s Statement

As I paint,I aim to liberate myself from any previosly learned patterns.I paint freely,beliving nothing save from the painting carrying itself all the way to being finished."Free orientation;every work is playground of free painting and the work creates its own perimeter.Natural emotions enter my paintings,thus my works are about emotions.I am free of the end result.I dont let myself be bound to a particular style or dogma.Such binding would feel like shackles to me.I dont want to be predestined towards any goal.Relations to ones self obstacles/limited vision.Any meaning only comes forth when the painting is finished.
