My art is about nature, reproduced in abstract forms. With my works, I try to show people's deep connection with the environment and meaningfully remind contemporaries of the need to cherish and preserve nature. Abstraction speaks for itself because it is what everyone wants to see. What it is about, what the artist has put in it, and the emotions behind it. Everything invested therein begins to come to life in people's perception of different experiences and habits. In this way, speaking about the general ideas of environmental protection, I select various topics and thus activate different worldviews and memories in society.
For work, I often use slime, which is a unique material. In general, slime is a popular children's anti-stress hand toy. I added a new purpose to this viscous material, brought it to the art territory, and made it relevant with my author's technique. I also recycle paper and plastic using my special technology to create sculptures.
After all, we like to solve riddles instead of knowing the answers right away. Not only do I create paintings, but I also think about the environment and what I can potentially change. I am always looking for new artistic techniques, paying attention to plastic and paper processing and using these methods in my art. I found inspiration primarily in nature, and it is she who evokes in me those powerful reactions that make me feel ready to turn the world upside down.
My art is about encouraging people to sustainable development and protecting nature. We live in the Anthropocene, but this period should not be an ecological catastrophe. On the contrary, we can try to save land, air, and water from pollution, debris, and other human activities. Today, there are almost no landscapes left without anthropogenic impact. Civilisational garbage, an excess of electric light, and the noise of cities are everywhere. Traces and substances of industrial activities are everywhere. In my artworks, I discover alternative ways of mutually beneficial coexistence and intend to show others the importance of biological balance through natural diversity.
