My constant search and desire is to create objects which will inspire myself and others to use memories or imagination for interpretation of a dreamlike Still Life. Composition is an important element for me since it creates either static or a dynamic feel to each piece, as well as space to object ratio. Contrary to most Still Life masters, I have tried to remove a time frame from the equation so it doesn’t project a precise historical period for each piece but rather has a timeless feel to it. In some instances, I describe each object using the Cyrillic alphabet. This depicts what they are, or at least what I want people to perceive they are, and as each object is analyzed, it might appear to be something else or quite opposite.
