I refer to the immense legacy of Western pictorial canon by means of attempting redefinition of phantasms, such as: the figure of an artist, the studio, the body of the one, who creates. Pictorial loans and quotations motivate my painterly gestures and self-analysis, and thus contribute to the extension of thought over cultural changes currently taking place in Europe. I wish to find that the grandeur of communing with the iconographic canon of our culture defers in favour of reflecting upon the medium and, taking a step further, over the visible world. Such strategy results in self-themed narratives framed in naive depictions. With the use of metaphor, optical illusion and irony I reach the boundary of interpretation, where the ‘wrong’ (the childish) rendition of reality has its merit alongside the officially acknowledged – ‘right’ one.
