“As an artist I am fascinated by the world that lies behind the visible – energies between people, feelings and the spiritual field. I gather inspiration from every moment of life. There exists two sides in me. One part searches for inspiration from a person’s inner world. This world is set on canvas through spontaneous cognition. The other part of me is fascinated by the rational and systematic world of machines. This is transformed to paintings through mathematical models and sacral geometry. I want to find a unifying line inside me between realistic and surrealistic painting, be spontaneous and free, create art that reflects the surrounding world.”

“Kunstnikuna inspireerib mind maailm, mis jääb meile nähtamatuks – inimeste vahelised energiad, tunded ja vaimne väli. Inspiratsiooni ammutan igast elatud hetkest. Minus eksisteerib kaks poolust. Üks osa minust otsib inspiratsiooni inimese sisemaailmast, mis kandub lõuendile spontaanselt läbi tunnetuse. Teine osa huvitub Masinate ratsionaalsest maailmast, mis baseerub süsteemsusel ning mille väljendus kandub maalipinnale läbi matemaatiliste mudelite ja sakraalgeomeetria. Eelnevast kasvavad välja süsteemsed konstruktsioonid. Tahan leida iseendas ühendava joone realistlike ja sürrealistlike maalide vahel, olla spontaanne ja vaba, kuid samas luua teoseid, mis peegeldavad ümbritsevat.”
