Some people say “why create?”, “What is the point of creating when you not at level of top masters?” I would say “Why not to create?” and secondly if you love cakes and still wonder how your mum made this apple pie would you deprive yourself from eating it because it was not baked at some kind of “top, posh bakery”? The point of creating has really very little to do with human concept of commercialised “success”. Creating is a different dimension, level of existing that simply doesn’t fit our pre-programmed by social expectations minds. ...

Paint Wonders

 Painting never stops for me, never makes me bored and always lead me to explore more. Without painting there would be no sense to life, no art either meaning. Once you start truly painting it becomes or you become unstoppable. After my still ongoing exploration of colourful and dynamic inner landscapes abstracts I am slowly moving towards exploration of life through medium of painting of series focusing on…wonders of paint in figurative inspired subject matter. ...

Art is about finding a different reality

I was painting for few hours, learning about new paints via the beauty of experiment and failure when I sat for a moment at my desk. I glazed at the canvas and that statement just appeared from nowhere: Art is about finding a different reality...I realised all my creative processes been a lot about finding new way of expression that never existed before. There is a very little in my art about depicting the reality, picture or an object. I am finding realistic still life at the moment totally uninspiring. It may all change but at that very moment art is about finding the different reality... .

Throwing the colour

In his short document "I need color" Jim Carrey is saying a lot about his connection with painting, art and colour. And I get it. He needs colour. I need to throw colour. Literally "throw" and visually too. Many of my quick "emotional release" entries in journals or on paper, canvases are the  effect of combined colour and dynamism in application of it. Wonder about the process? Carry on reading.

In the presence of the paint

There are moments when I need to be in the presence of the paint. Sometimes after long days left with drained soul I open up art room's doors just to breath the smell of paint- grabbing quickly a paintbrush and making a stroke on the canvas or paper is transforming the reality. Awareness of that therapeutic power of paint and its strong sensory aspect became clear to me some time ago once being involved into abstracts work. I never expected it to be this way, but saying that I never expected to be an artist some times ago!

Creative pause

There are moments of quietness in creative life. Moments when paint doesn’t flow so well from the brush and we pause. The power of pausing and honouring it has been recently very important to me. I think as artists we do grow once we have learnt lessons of pausing. By stopping I do not mean stop creating but rather stepping on side and reflecting back on why we are feeling urge to slow down. The power of pause has a lot to do with transition in many ways of art and personal development interfacing with each other. Recently my art pause is about transition to new interest and inspiration…That is what I am hoping it is about but who knows for sure...

Paint brush extention is all you are

 Sometimes I truly believe I am just a mere extension of the brush. It is the paint brush doing its work. Performing, creating strokes, loading the paint, making marks. My ideas? Come from above, appear from the cloudy reality and I am the transporter of them-some kind of communication channel. We all love to believe we are exclusive creators- great idea's holders and the special one. But are we really? More time I spend in the presence of art the more I am becoming convinced there is something beyond human control, creative flow itself actually is definitely beyond. Only by allowing that control to be taken by art/universe/god/spirit/soul (*choose appropriate) we experience the magic of creation...

Walking away

Complications of life situations sometimes are becoming much easier to express through words than the rational explanation. Sometimes we need to put words down to be able to process what is happening within the inner world.

Dragging my heart

Life gets heavy, life can get dark...Still... we carry on and what is unexpected that once something is gone there is something else around the corner to drag behind...

November spirit

 

In past I never welcomed autumn. I would hold on to regret that summer is gone, the fact we have a long way before days become longer again. But gradually I started seeing the point of darker days, longer nights and the whole "withdrawn", "inwards" concept of quieter season. We are transitioning from outward living of spring and summer to go back to our self- time for introspection, inner journeys and welcoming shadows to learn to dig deeper into souls. This November this short poetic assemblage of words just popped out of my mind...
