"The world we live in, according to Jung, is a world of invisible archetypes. Every person has an ability to create in any field of human activity. Everything depends on him/her. Fine Arts is one of the most descriptive and ancient demonstrations of human desire to create, with developing cycles that show the similarities between art from vastly varying periods and locations. In the course of all the history of mankind, the notion of beauty has been flowing from one style to another, creating links of perception between them. Through art, humans can open themselves to the beauty and divine harmony of the universe.
In my artwork this concept is realized by joining different depictions that, in my view, are fundamentally united by common features in a harmonic collage. And that is an attempt to make human perception refer to the space–time continuum of harmony in the world in a way that allows the viewer to be part of the process.
I would like to make the beauty of the world brighter, more joyful and accessible for all people."
