Like the prodigal son, we have to complete a circle --- from a formless mass of muscles and nerves to a functional, sensible, loving being; from aimless and selfish testers of our strength to purposeful and conscious souls, ready to return to the Creator.


In this series, the spontaneous, abstract splashes and shapes represent natural forces or gestural moves at different stages of human development. The dynamic poses of the figures embody striving for life, overcoming natural obstacles on the path of self-development and self-realization. The red symbolises a living force, it’s the color of blood and fire. The minimalistic white background of the compositions underscores the idea that there is just one major, ever-present barrier -- human nature itself. We have to transcend and develop ourselves in order to understand our place in the universe.
