When I started exploring with oil, about 12 years ago, I’ve been naturally drawn to explore the human psyche through narrative figure compositions. One of my obsessions in that period was the male figure and the act of eating. Eating as a metaphor of self-preservation and self-celebration.
Composed like mundane cinematographic stills, my vision was to reveal some deeper transient presence of our human condition. That was only a start and I plan to go back to this series in the near future.

Along with 3 commissions started at the end of 2015, I’m pursuing the development of the two
series: Tea cups & Glasses. By allowing exploration on many levels - colors, details, light and
subtle elusive narrative through composition, I’ve found that these objects still hold some intriguing potential of excitement and attraction that enrich the foundations of my daily practice. All of this takes time, but this year I aim to build a consistent body of work with the two, while gradually creating some new space for the human figure.
