All That Fashion, Nymphs and Satyr, ThePainter's Life
Co-operation with architects, interior designers, lanscape architects
I am prepared for co-operation with architects, interior designers, landscape architects and sculptors on the base of abstract key. (defined hierarchy of visual contrasts) My part is developing space structures that can be applied and producing thematic sculptures in various materials. Terracotta, bronze, metal, etc.
Independent cultural unit. Poetics of everyday life. Observation. Transformation into complex stylized sculpture that is interesting for longer observation.
1.Starting point: small terracotta stylized figurative or abstract composition (choosing from my archives)
2.Co-operation: architects, designers, art-lovers, collectors. (Choosing the right size and material, positioning, enlargement)
3.End point: Well positioned aestetic object that radiates visual culture in surrounding space (home, garden, street, park, office, etc.)
Sculptures are delivered by reliable logistic services.

My latest terracotta sculptures, mostly groups of human figures, reflect on the human body as a part of social scenarious. These are defined by clothes and postures. I am focused more on a social milieu than on particular person. My work is strongly related to poetic of everyday life even if content is mythological. For a single work I collect images from different sources, such as social life, history of art, mythology, personal experience....and put them into the melting pot of imagination. They are reborn later in a composition which connect them according to abstract key, hierarchy of formal contrasts. The process is controled in terms of aestetic but very intuitive in sense of content. The result is unpredictable becouse I learn about the subject as I work. Rhytm, metaphor, psychology, geometry, patterns, codifying modern feelings are the cores of my aestetical and discursive concerns. I chose pure terracotta by which I create dialog between image and memory as well as between present and history of art. I understand it as a place for thinking about present and discovering mystery of sculpture as such.
