The year 2022 was, I must say, both exciting and challenging. It doesn’t mean that it was an easy year, but whatever challenges I encountered were steps to more fulfilling times and also more knowledge. Those who are familiar with my journey know what I mean by ‘knowledge’. Even though I have learned a few additional job-related skills, the essential lessons concern the understanding of the Self.

Life lessons and events related to them limited my creative period to the last months of 2022. Below are the results. The new perspective and emotional shift were reflected in my colour choice, motives and execution as well. Yes, you may say that I have, again, drastically changed my style of painting, and you are right. But to me, being honest about my creative urges is more important than being loyal to one creative style. The main characteristic of my new style is combining rich texture with the contours of various simplified objects.
