My adventure with art has begun fairly recently, namely with coronovirus pandemic caused lockdown.
Adventure in an active sense, ie. making art that is, as I have always been an avid museum-goer and have always enjoyed consuming art, so to speak, in my free time.
During the sad lockdown I was finally free to explore some other things in life, in my case that was to venture into fractal creation.
Unrestricted by usual constraints of Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 workday, I dived nose deep into fractal software and after a while, really amazing results started to appear.
Fractal art is not exactly like conventional art, ie. I do not know what result I am going to achieve at the end of the process. What I do is to explore virtual yet unrealized combinations of mathematical functions and decide that the job is done based purely on my sense of aesthetics and when I am emotionally touched by what I see.
My every artwork is a journey into the unknown and that is the beauty of it - pushing the envelope as far as you can and finding yet undiscovered treasures, waiting there in platonic possibilities realm to be found.
I want my art to convey sense of underlying beauty and strong emotions to a viewer - I cannot be sure what emotions it will evoke, as (to paraphrase great Umberto Eco) art is a machine for creating interpretations, that the artist is often unaware at the time of creation, but the emotional connection must be there - then I know I've done my job right.
My art is by its nature very abstract, but I have many inspirations that influenced my aesthetics. To name but a few: Yaoyi Kusama, Assyrian Lion Hunt, Chauvet cave paintings, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian, Jarek Yerka, Tamara Lempicki, Zdzisław Beksiński,Salvador Dali, Andrzej Pągowski, Rene Magritte, Ai Weiwei and so the list goes on, and on, and on... :)
