I paint in oils and acrylics, in small and big formats, in any free minute. My painting process is often like zapping through TV channels - I rotate between multiple paintings and themes each day:
There are portraits - I've been always fascinated by human faces, their expressions and what they reveal about the person. I would sit and study and try to capture what’s essential. Then, tired of painstakingly focussing on details I would go on to paint some fabulous creatures - with a light hand, being free and creative with colours and forms. But don't take them too lightly... there is more behind them than it may seem. That might lead me to paint scenes of my live: experiences, memories, feelings. Sometimes I end up painting a classical scene, for example a pond - just like Monet but then out of nowhere some strangers sneak in and make themselves comfortable in the middle of the scene. Well, all I can do is to welcome them and then go back to another portrait where things seem to be comfortably clear and predictable... but are they?
About my Art & Lore Workshops - Bridging Art and Science
I love science – Do you too?
One day, talking to my friends about art and science, we found similar goals and motivations in understanding and describing the world around us. This is when the idea of combining both Art & Science in Workshops was born. Since then I put up some workshops in collaboration with scientists and organizations like Beakerhead or Contemporary Calgary, to convey interesting facts, for instance about our ecosystems or microcosm, and to process those knowledge creatively using unusual art techniques and materials. The workshops are for young and old, from art newbies to experienced artist - it's all about being creative and having fun.
Are you interested lo learn more about the workshops?
