Artist Statement

As a matter of fact, the strongest impressions usually cannot be described by words, but by the nonverbal communication, where the visual arts belongs at the first place. I came up with the conclusion that the Great Works of Art, did not make people only spiritually enriched, but they are the major contributors to our civilization. Great works of Art are reflecting not only our impressions about them, but the deepest wishes, which are following every human being.

Through my education and many years of work I found out that the Visual Art is all about passing that energy to other people through her symbols and vibration of : lines, color wave lengths and shapes in the surrounding space, while the meaning of the artwork is not only what composition actually presents, but a specifics coded structure of that art piece, that makes a human being able to notice a beauty as a source of harmony.

Changing the mood in the observer and trying to shift his thought process, to make him think positive by exposing that person to my creations, is only one of many things I am trying to achieve. I am looking for the psychological influence of the visual adds that are carrying the aesthetic value, because they are presenting the example of the visual harmony (Beauty).

However, my goal is actually to show that the achieved visual harmony has a code that an educated observer needs to follow and translate at the language of science. Today's achievements of modern medicine, chemistry, psychology, can include the contemporary visual art as one of the sources for decoding the cure for many different diseases and much more than that.

As a matter of fact, Quantum physics that defines the particle as the universal starting point for philosophical and mathematical analysis, is holding the “observer” as a vehicle of electromagnetic waves that is caring electrons of energy dispersed in logical order, as the light we see.

As a matter of fact, the order of electrons is, also, scientifically proven and known today as the “wave interference.” That means that every single "thought" is made out of electromagnetic waves, which are rated through the observer's brain as a specific structure that has a specific vibration and radiation. Our brain is a mechanism to notice, decide and influence the surroundings in a way that we can discover, by ourselves .

However, it also means that electrons that surrounds us can multiply thanks to the brain waves , which are nothing else but electro-magnetic waves created by our brain that are triggering a new wave interference every time we observe something . It is Logical that the reach of the "waves" presented through the "interference pattern", is increasing through time. This means that thoughts can spread within and over the bounders of our life, and have a crucial influence everywhere by their radiation. Having beautiful and peaceful thoughts means deserving and getting the best in life.

The knowledge can help to achieve that state of mind .

So, Art could be understood as the knowledge stored for new science turnaround towards the new energy, which exist within us, and it could be, also, triggered by some visual adds if they would carry the powerful "aesthetic code" .

Today it is known that the human brain is using less than 10 % of its capacity and nothing more than that has been scientifically proven yet. However, by exploring art, we could move our understanding of the way we are living today because Art was always opening new doors of our psyche that we never even knew, existed.
