Concept

"Concept of my paintings is symbolical reading of reality. Through my creations I try to find my way into irreal, magic, mysterious world which coexist with our world. I want to open a small door, have a look into a keyhole and see as little Alice, the heroine created by the writer Lewis Carroll, one day have seen a fairyland. The fairyland where angels and cats drink tea, and funny little men catch stars with butterfly net, where the moon and the sun can meet each other in the sky in the daylight and a unicorn wander along the meadows with different patterns and flowers scattered on i, where the whole city and trees fit in a teapot, and on the lip of a cup a horse travels, all are extremely happy and joyful there. May be it is an Utopia but I am eager to know and believe that such a world exists and at the wish one can see it. And my paintings are small doors and windows into a marvelous land where our dreams and ideas being intertwined merge into one big magic story!"
