I find inspiration in people and their surroundings, most importantly the sea and its shores.
The cliffs of the southern shores of Vis have always made a strong impression on me, with their size and their structure. Witnessing the interaction they have with the powerful sea forces helped shape my artistic signature. It’s exactly the kind of energy that grows in me until it finds a way to come out on a painting and express itself like a wave crashing on a cliff.
A perpetual seeker in me always rejoices in finding an unexpected artistic path and the new awareness it brings.
Imitating nature and remaining sensitive to the new and unusual are my guiding principles. I favor discovering over planning, that is why layering, sedimentation, and leaving traces play an important role in my work. Irregularities and mistakes are always welcome as they open up the space for unexpected results. My paintings have a simple composition, but they are artistically rich in structure and layering.
Special attention is paid to the tools, I often find them in nature (wooden sticks, plants, various dry leaves) and explore the lines and traces they leave on the surface.
From time to time, you will find residue of my tools in the paintings, nature’s subtle signature.
