About myself and my artworks

... even though it's actually like love - you just love and that's it. When you are at high altitude looking at the mountain ranges of the Carocoramas, the landscape splits into an applicative set of colored pieces that are pastel in the daytime, like a medieval tapestry - or else it gets frantic with all the colors of the rainbow at sunset.

... that the mountains are the abode of the gods, when you are there you feel their presence. There is no need to look for a beautiful landscape in the mountains - you see them everywhere. Mountain landscapes are the most synthetic! They contain fields, forests, rivers, lakes - even seas - and, of course, mountains! Conceptually, they are the most abstract of all.
landscapes of the earth.

... abstraction and realism. The composition develops not only horizontally, but also vertically. They are very rich in color due to the high purity of the air. ... they become very graphic in foggy weather ... in general, the atmosphere of the mountains is the best thing!

... here it smells of melted snow, spring and power!

... this is eternal youth!
