"..Art has the power to cause a revolution, to change minds. It is for me a communication aimed at the search for truth, in life, in reality. Art has an immense philosophical potential, it is a form of freedom to express thoughts, emotions, observations and ‘conclusions’ on the world around us. In my art I combine craftsmanship with conceptual and spiritual aspects. I am trying to find the legacy of mythology, folklore, tradition and old believes. I am getting back to the roots, when human life was connected to the natural environment and when the arts were considered spiritual, magical, a secret language used in many rituals and rites. I make my artworks manually, with the preciseness of a craftsman, because I think that these skills are important and are coming from mankind’s talent. I use a lot of symbolical and conceptual aspects, because the brain is an enormous force and I like to challenge it. I refer to mythology, legends and folklore, because I see it as the most incredible set of knowledge which indicate universal truths, behaviorism and spirituality. "

You can't have all the sweets in the shop you have to stick with one or two from my own personal experience. I realised that I wasn't going to live forever . So I stopped making 3d work quite a while ago . Storage was a problem every time I moved I had to break up work . Left only with photos/ slides of the same. I lost interest in making things , because I was making things , had no dialogue with the materials. Not for me, now anyhow .Down the road who knows. I still have to learn too much about 2D image making... [Goto..]

Mamma mia... don't tell me you're going to disappear! Only just arrived, stirring things up with sound critique, and you're already fed up? Personally, I'd like to know what it means:
"Watching TV" Oil on canvas 120X70 2014 [GoTo..]
" Young man asleep" Oil on canvas 100X90 2014 [GoTo..]
"New Shoes" Oil painting 80X90 2013 [GoTo..]
I'm glad you are still around! I find the story behind this intriguing. Would it be too much trouble to describe the disaster and the resultant mess? [GoTo..]
I see her as comfortably dissociated. She's almost grounded (look at her feet and their distance from eachother) but it is as though she is lingering between two expectant moments versus, perhaps, where she'd prefer to be. I like this one very much. [GoTo..]
Dear Jp: the she is of course a he now and i didn't manage to leave him out. He walked into the painting without announcing it. I will see if i can find space for "she" somewhere, in the coming days. I didn't manage to listen to what i can leave out. Sorry Miles. [GoTo..]
Yes, it was a lot of fun! I'm Hoping do it again as soon as I 'can'. This gave me the opportunity to revive the time I did this as a kid, and break my mind box. There are some artists migrating from street to galleries and some are not. Those who are going to galleries are changing their work and everybody is happy [GoTo..]

nice story, i we like to learn more on this issue please any body [GOTO..]
There are not many places to exhibit, in this local area without having to join a art group. There are two but I decline to join as they do selection on the art work and no guarantee you will get your work in exhibition. It costs a lot to frame your work, and also the amount of hours spent on the work. There was a census for a gallery to be opened in the area, said it was not viable.
Ha ha! Well done Maestro! Yes you're to be commended as again it's my own laziness that's caused the problem.
