ARCHETYPES
“The whole work of art is based on the logic of the cube. The cube as a unit is multiplied creating flooring sculptural expansion in the space. In my work I seek existing values as the aesthetics of austerity, the clearness of lines and forms, the order of meters of powerful impression but above all of concealed geometry.
The sculptural dense composition of archetypal repeated motifs creates the powerful impression of order and harmony. The repeated elements indicate the expectance of wisdom, harmony, balance and justice for shaping of world on a universal and individual level which continuously coexist and transform”.
