Here are their associative series:
– The book entitled “The magic of plants” which was authored by a famous magician and mystic from the early twentieth century named Paul Sedir.

– Artworks of famous illustrators of botanical publications: Maria Sybil Merian, James Sowerby, Paul Jones, Jakob Sturm, Walter Migula and others.
– Arguments of Paracelsus on the relationship between plants and stars.
– Magic druid practices based on the connection of plants with the four elements: Earth, Fire, Wind, & Water.
– Sacred plants in Indian mythology, etc.
In this series of paintings, I try to capture my understanding of the relationship between flora, humanity and all living creatures; consider the Soul of the plant, embodied in the seed, which Paracelsus called “the clissus” – the ancestral life force of plants.

These renditions of my visual interpretatation are made in silvery-gray and olive tones in which I try to depict the fragility and insecurity of plants. My goal is to appeal to the world of plants with more attention; not to reject them from the course of their properties of which they have been endowed by human rumor from ancient times. Try to consider the world of flora and their unity with all living entities when viewing these works.

These paintings feature metallic undertones and some metallic colored highlights. Due to the reflective quality of the paints used, photographic representations are not always completely accurate to see all details visible to the human eye. Please take this into consideration when viewing these paintings.
