Together

Together - oil and acrylic on 2 canvases - 118/76 cm


Surrealism together with magic realism form substantial part of my sources of inspiration. Earlier in my life I was completely taken by the radical, abstract surrealist Joan Miro. More recently I found Leonora Carrington. Her understanding of a multi-layered world where the events "happen" together strikes the core of my artistic practice.

I paint and draw, sometimes with scissors. Often painted figurative cut-outs replace the restricted picture-on-the wall format.

Alive - oil and acrylic on canvas


My work emerges from traditional academic background now transformed through experience of "juggling" with colours and techniques.

I am interested in mythology and how stories from the past are related to our contemporary life.
