Outer space

Works from the “Outer space” series develop the artist’s previous interest in the ten­sion between the mimetic aspect of a pain­ting and its mechanical execution. The result of the nearly automatic process of covering the canvas with lines of equal length is a view of a star­lit sky. So, the pic­ture represents not only the things that were pain­ted (hun­dreds of dark lines on white canvas), but at the same time the associations con­nec­ted with this abs­tract view. As points of view and distance from the pain­ting chan­ges, the scales of its meaning turn from the material and proces­sual towards the illusionistic aspect of the work.
