STATEMENT

My task is to find the very same form, line, and shape on which there is an eternal and immortal, unchanging, perfect. Those forms that the ancients have given us, those lines and shapes that artists have created, this whole vast period of time, from ancient to the present day, gives us all strength and inspiration.

I search for purity and harmony, the desire to express feelings and emotions with simple shapes and lines, and to understand and link the outer world with inner peace. Pure forms are an expression of strength, balance, and integrity; they are in accordance with nature, refer to the natural instincts, and help get closer to the attainment of wisdom.

The world around us, with all its colors, shapes, and scents affects us. Being in this magical state, when you are a sensitive device that interacts with the movement of the elements of nature, you eventually see how perfect and wonderful the world is through the prism of your own eyes.

I do not want to follow any rules or any laws, and I know there is only one important thing - the universal language, common to all time - the sense of touch and stimulation. I want to speak only in this language and no other.

Stop for a moment to touch the world inside of you and grasp infinity, stretch your feet into the ground and let your hands touch the sky; this is the most delightful moment of creativity. Be in constant search for purity, go to the core, be universal, and desire to hold the thread of the laws of life, purity, and wisdom
