Painting action, energy, passion (“By passion the world is bound, by passion too it is released” – reads the ancient Indian text). Painting as an exaltation of being (direct, immediate, like a lyric poem – an attempt to capture the moment). Abandoning the chimera of three-dimensionality, the paintings are void of any depth, just as the contemporary world is without depth. The depths of the modern world and its subterranean hallways – the search for meaning – have all become superficial in the contemporary world. The painting has no hierarchies, no layers. Rather, it spreads over the canvas like a rhizome, mostly on a monochromatic background. “Every star on my paintings represents a desire”, says Van Gogh. In my work these are the blue dots, which appear in several paintings. Pulsating desires of cobalt blue.
