"... The pleasure which act of painting gives me is beyond description. Time stops, everything that surrounds me disappear.
It’s magic.
That’s why all my paintings are equally valuable for me – each one reminds me how happy I could be..."

Exaggerate use of known

Curator’s remarks

Almost all his paintings are dominated by large figures, giving us basic theme, but it is on beholder to further develop, enrich or alter theme, using and combining all the elements he could find on painting.

Small people, horses, buildings, machines which surround mainly static giants, all this gives us substance to interpret, but huge amount of information that pours from every painting leads us to doubt – what is the right interpretation?

I came to conclusion that any interpretation is the right one, but at the same time futile because "magical objects" are depicted and one must approach them in way that presumes absence of rational and quelling inner dialogue.
Touch of luck
