The epitheme principle suggested by the artist himself underlies all his works. Its key feature is based on a specific pattern of transition from the particular to the general which is different from i.a. mechanism of various classifications or links; ‘the general’ is herein constructed of the discovered or already existing mental epithemic connections. An epitheme is a mental cross-point for isothemes or concepts representing both current and potential liaisons between notions, ideas in science and technology, as well as in art, politics and business. A concept or an isotheme is a special case of an epitheme. A reading spectator is the constructive element of an epitheme. A work of art includes a reading spectator into a right here right now existing epitheme rather than simply speaks to them. The epithemic connections are capable of naturally bringing together the semiosphere and the conceptosphere.
A work of art is regarded both as a trigger and a medium of epithemic ties capable of fully reflecting the inner and the outer world of a human being, and functioning as a small basic element which can later on develop into a new or a larger entity.
The artist makes use of potentials of painting as well as of modern technologies and materials, and sociocultural phenomena and cultural theories; he is keen on exploring and artistically representing up-to-date subjects, plots and ‘texts’.
