In a series of my new artworks, I do find myself …“in a search of imperfection”. It makes me emotionally close to Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetics, with its simplicity, roughness and modesty. Nothing needs to be fixed! No more technological polish, silicon, or visual clarity! Only imperfect glazes, gentle flaws, asymmetry, and uneven lines. Practicing imperfection in art helped me realized that things are the most beautiful when they are unfinished or begin to fade. Like never before, now I sense serenity in aging when scars become signs of experience, rust and patina become a new elegance…

In my work, I’m searching for serenity by representing my own inner space. I use classical art forms, but also enjoy playing with new different materials. My art process is intuitive, it's a kind of a conversation I am having with the canvas. The language I'm using is colors, shapes and textures to communicate something beyond that cannot be expressed with words. Painting has become a tool that lets me explain stories and express everything that makes surprises, depressed me, annoyed and all the other emotions that make who I am. I hope, it gives the viewer the opportunity to create their own story, meaning or associations, and makes each piece personal to them. I wish my artworks bring some joy and thoughtfulness, as well.
