About the author
The artist's work in recent years is a search for abstract painting. These abstract images are combinations of elements of living nature, highlighting the change of natural forms and processes, their expressive and vital character. Restless, as if random strokes, their intersections and rhythmicity are ever-renewing, unpredictable changing forms. Silhouettes of dark contrasting and restless strokes on light backgrounds form the compositional structures of paintings, asymmetrical movement without beginning and end. The color of the paintings is moderate, several main colors often prevail. This allows to create of the desired mood and highlights emotional tension.
