Basic inspiration of my early abstract paintings, were images of barren expanses of mystic land and landscape, impressed upon me during my childhood. Later my forms turned into repetitive gestures of writing, creating a modern visual abstract language of their own. They were illegible writings with latent eternal wisdom. Works of this period resembled breeze through the fields, or streaks of rain under glittering light. Endlessly repeating strokes of brush created abstract, rhythmic compositions. Since mid-seventies I turned to abstraction of textures and masonry-works of olden structures, semi-visible obscured arabesques and architectural forms. Same concept of repeated details forming an abstract expanse are present here as well. These compositions are mystical and convey an aura of stand-still quiet and feeling of awe and reverence.
