BRIEF CARACTERISTIC OF ARTISTIC PRACTICE:

To get the silhouette of the human in my works I use the shadow of myself. This creative process is like action, were are involved not only one ARTist .The shadow is interesting for my as it always change its form because of light. It is interesting for me to make art work from the shadow, putting it into unusual place. I work with woodcut, one of the oldest graphic art techniques. Now I connect this technique with possibilities offered by new technologies: plywood I cut and curve with electric drills, print on canvas. In this way my graphic works looks nearly like paintings. I like to use thing from different materials in my works it helps me to create the pictures where I can show my plastic and aesthetic ideas. Sometimes I create works with special sound, or three dimensional works by connecting my woodcuts printed on canvas with various things from different materials.
