ARS POETICA

If I look at the document certifying my qualification, it has архитектор, i.e. architect in Cyrillic ornate lettering on it.  My qualification is evidenced not only by these lines in my diploma but also by numerous houses and buildings combining features of various architectural styles and functions that have been planned and designed by me. Over the course of my professional career and looking out of the designed windows, I began to really notice the outside landscape.  “Breaking down” the walls around the design table, my interests began shifting towards painting and graphic art. For a long time architecture was the prevailing mode of my expression but it has changed. Today, it is graphic and pastel that have become particularly decisive for me. I have always admired the systems that exist in nature, its structure and organisation. So I believe that considering both environmental and natural conditions is an important keystone to the design of a building.  Therefore, different environmental factors can also be used in planning.  In the first, design stage of the creative process, standing in front of the white paper, we can see the structure of a building within the natural landscape and the emerging image is taking form in the master’s creative hands.

I have to admit that pastel dust is my basic material of graphic art. Whatsmore, there is an interesting duality in it.  The basic painting technique material balancing on the borderline between painting and grafic arts is chalk, fine powder formed into sticks.  This rigid and brittle stick hides the softness that comes to life on paper through the touch of hands and caressing fingers; I have chosen landscape, more precisely, the landscape of Transcarpathia as the theme for these paintings.

In Transcarpathia, the mountains take over the role of walls which at different ages had opened up and and let us in, to one another and then blocked us from each other.  However, they had always protected the colourful cavalcade of people living at their foot. In fact they have become an indelible part of our lives. this "house" many of us live. As a result, different nationalities and traditions have created a cultural formation that has inspired a lot of people including me, by the idea of creating artwork.
