I explore myself, my feelings through painting. When I paint, I examine my attitude to the object, to the moment that I have lived or live. I paint the men I know, I paint the man I love, the people who struck my nerve. In my work I intermingle shades of what is happening inside and around and undoubtedly excites me: betrayal, emotional closeness, intimacy, chemical sex – things that happen all the time, therefore, almost imperceptibly. I like to paint people lying down: when a person lies, they feel differently. Usually it happens like this: suddenly I see a harmonious combination the depth of the moment and the beauty of the composition, I capture it, and then paint a picture and thus explore the moment. For me, this is both therapy and meditation.
