The paintings deal with an intimate, simple and recognizable theme – portrait. The theme is very close to me, since in my paintings I am focused on an individual, their inner life and my perception of their reality.
The models in the paintings are mainly static, shown in natural poses, and aware that they are taking part in the creative process. The emphasis is on the model’s psychological expression, as well as the relation between the model and the artist. The strong, heavy coat of paint and intense colors accentuate emotional expressiveness. As a painter, I focused on the ability of colors to directly express my experience of portrait painting, with a desire to show the passion and true artistic experience.
