...fluttering, scattered fragments of floating thoughts, mixed feelings, promiscuous images,intangible something...

...does anything appearing on a paper, canvas, another material actually depend on the author?

...vague brushstrokes, translucent layers of paint, a shifting line and pulsating color highlight new shape of Something from Nowhere...

...consciously or not, Something gradually takes shape, color, emotions...

...Images appear one after another, acquiring a shell almost spontaneously...

...the threshold between conceived and unintended is surreal, but the result itself is entitled to be...

...attempts to highlight the differences between the seen and perceived, the idea and the result...

...almost ghostly, the ability to create the desired result, yields enticing, clearly palpable sense of involvement, being almost the only incentive to justify the creation...

...images expose on a surface appearing out of nowhere, unconsciously altering Something to bring us what we want to see...

...the dependence on the reality is obvious...

...despite the best efforts of the almost complete abdication, there is Something that always reminds of the existence of reality...

...a plane surface, horizon, window, light source - anything can be a reminiscence of inescapable connection between "inward" and "outward"...

...the meaning of an image... What is it?

...is it in visual documentation of facts and history, or in depiction and transmission of the beauty?

...it`s in attempt to stop the time and save Something slipping away...

...or it`s merely - making the difference...

...reflection is an opportunity for another vision, a special way to perceive, a possibilityto refract the reality and an attempt to obtain the desired image...

...beinga part of creation process gives an enticing opportunity to get out of bordersof mere reality mirroring, and brings toexistence yet unfolded thoughts and aspirations, vesting sensual outbursts inhuman features...
