Signs that appear in my works come from my imagination. When being enchanted by nature I synthesize this world and portray it in the form of imaginary symbols. Among signs that I use there are ones that may be explained in relation to Christian, Egyptian or Greek symbology - symbols of fish, eye or wings; but also those that bear no relation to concrete forms - abstract symbols composing specific, complex systems like archaic, ideographic scriptures. Those signs are not symbols that should be directly read, they rather represent signs that are riddles tempting viewer's imagination. They lead back to ancient mystique but without the signposts.
