DRAWINGS




In the genesis of image drawing came first. That is why drawing has been my companion throughout all four greater chapters of my painting – secondary school and student realism, concept, figuralics and the present figuralics nouveau. Each period was driven by different aspiration, unfolding various sorts of drawings. Drawings of the past two or three years have become a firm foundation of my personal artistic envisioning. With them I solve the superstring-like gestures of strokes and fractal texture or structure of the »portrayee«. I apply the less-and-less used drawing by model and loyally pursue the new alliance of contemporary realism. The drawing is modified from the spatially-composed drawing into an eruptive pulsation with subtle strokes, created by the tip of a finger and energy from the entire body. The latest drawings are full of artistic outbursts with meanders scattered all over the format, visually luring the essence of the »portrayee«. The soft-bright and robust-dark expressiveness of the lines in an almost chaotic structure are every now and then accompanied by the finger-tip-stroked carbon pencil dust. The contour retreats to the undefined whiteness of the papyrus as an empowered ritual, ballet. The magic spell of the drawing reveals the nature of the tangible and intangible three-dimensional world before our eyes. Drawing helps me to analyse, contemplate, examine and study the simultaneously practised artistic motifs. Sketches and drawings thus embody their stories and narratives, while the figures themselves function just as well in oil and graphics. These drawings breathe a life of their own and portray a generator in making of the author’s imaginarium.
