Oil on canvas
“Reading” – maybe it’s the most classical of my paintings. But even here I try to match the appropriate composition to the sense of painting. Reading brings to us calm and allows for being isolated. Surrounding world loses importance so the world we’re living in is the book now. The scenery is a stairway which suggests sudden decision to find something in the books. Very accidently. I’m always looking for these moments – when something diverts my attention and attracts by itself. I’m forgetting about everything then. When we are deprived of basic life aspects which guarantee privacy and even intimacy, we may find escape in reading. It’s another aspect of this situation. Like our brain needs to be reset by a dream to work next morning – the same way our mind needs to cut off from everyday thinking.
