After a thorough research, through a multitude of various landscape solutions, I have found a method which best presents my view of landscapes. I have applied reduction in order to achieve a reduced drawing.
I have primarily strived for achieving freshness, and subsequently dynamics, in the same breath, in one line. Drawing resembles a moment captured in the subconscious that remains there, both, when we close eyes and when we are consciously observing as well, the landscape between dream and reality, between the conscious and the unconscious, and between the past and the present, and all of these opposites bound by a line. Landscape as a moment, light and airy.
I have been trying to reduce the landscape to its essence through constant observation, elimination of details, omission of description, using only a small number of elements. I have been achieving this primarily by using a line as basic element of visual art. Its elementariness is of fundamental importance in my work. The line makes my visual language more comprehensible for the viewers, because it is the most intelligible and readable. The rhythm of lines forms plans in my work, horizontals of the landscapes or a hill that extends towards the emptiness, and set of points that forms bush from which a line unfolds.
