I see painting as creative strive of the subconscious and its communication through art media. Trough Jungian psychoanalytic theory, my body of work can be read as a move from art practice as a form of expression to its communication on symbolical level. From simple organic forms, pieces are gradually developed into complex organic systems. Their working title Creature/s, represent its bio-morph character. Besides its tendency to express my inner and/or spiritual happenings these artworks represent collective unconsciousness inbuilt in an author. Use of colors in their tension, expression, layers and hues, became study on human spiritual evolution and the tendency to develop new and sublime modes of mental progress. Further progress of series first called Creatures is its extension to virtual dimension and exploring modes of possible futures. Evolution of human spiritual energy became the central point of my artistic interest and further visual exploration. At this point, I see human biological and psychic dimensions deeply related and interceded by visual media. Bringing bio-morphs to action painting as expressionistic practice, I tried to extend personal expression to the level of symbolic communication with the general public.
