Artist Statement -

My first works of art I have created as a child depicted horses.
Drawing them, I thought I could feel every muscle of the horse I drew. It was far from perfect but the feeling remains.

Even today, after many years, my favorite subject is Horses. For me the horse, beside the beautiful gracious body, is a symbol of a free soul, loyalty and trust.
Especially I�m fascinated by their eyes. An eye, as old people say, is a window to a soul.
When you look in their trustful eyes, you can see they want to connect with us and are always as a vivid shadow that needs to be close, to follow and to please, and blindly don�t expect anything in return � just hopes for love and simple friendship for life.

Over the past ten years my work has transformed from a semi-realistic, simplified close-ups of my subjects, into a floating, colorful �Mottled� compositions.

My Mottled Horses - Equine art developed since 2003-4 in my new �Mottled� style that merges abstract and expressionism with a touch of realism. The subject is created on a colorful abstract background to express feelings, often shown as a close-up, with special attention to the eyes and focusing on specific moods and composition. Often with secondary transparent images to show movement or specific scenario.
In my paintings, I don�t intend to replicate photo-realistic objects, but to capture the utmost uniqueness of life. Illustrating my subjects, I often pay no attention to exact shapes, textures, or real colors and emphasize just on a small fragment, sometimes a very tiny detail, in order to insinuate an idea. That approach leads me to concentrate on what I feel and not what I see or know about the subject. Also, it helps me to effectively use visuals to depict a story about my subject. My art captures just an indication of a subject to leave the rest for my viewer�s imagination to create the unique picture.
