Creating art is for me a process of entering into myself, cleansing the mind and focusing on being here and now. For several years I practiced the therapeutic method of mindfulness, which I began, also used during the creative process. My works are expressive abstractions of my inner life. I paint by scanning what happens at a certain time, not only inside myself, but also by recording everything from the outside world. I realize that a man is built on his past and that he also influences what I record in my paintings. Painting is more for me attempting to release the mind “from everything” that surrounds it, what is in it, what blocks it by listening to what is happening in the present moment. Thanks to this, art acts on me therapeutically, while the recipient of my work has the opportunity to look inside himself through his reception at a given moment of his own reality.
