In the creation process the realistic and abstract methodes are using both in the same ways. The plastice expression of image in the some parts of canvas are supplement with the single or grouped colored squares reminiscent of digital pixels. They are an important detail of all works, used as another one layer of the artwork, suggesting like peculiar signs of temporality, fragments of changing reality or imaginary code streams that we seem to have no control over.
This way is deliberately aimed at breaking down the illusion of recognizable reality and presenting it as the result of a clearly redesigned image, or at least a variety of disturbances. The aim is to get as close as possible to doubt as a boundary state and to ask: how and to what extent what is visible actually corresponds to reality, and what is our relationship to it?
