“Like all mankind, and every person in particular, with the help of art and science, is trying to develop his spiritual nature and look beyond the known, to understand the laws of a harmonious world order. At all times, the desire to reflect the mechanics of the universe excited the minds of those whom we call the Great. The viewer’s way of contemplating art echoes the experiments of quantum physics and raises the general level of humanity’s awareness of the subtle structure of reality surrounding it. In my work, I am looking for ways to reflect the possible systems of the work of consciousness. Sometimes this requires complex color collisions, sometimes clashing structures, forcing the viewer’s brain to highlight these internal systems. This is a game of “attention – now a thought will fly out!”
