I often use poetical elements and ethereal figures in my artwork. Figures are often flying and floating, they are weightless and totally detached from the apparent linear reality. But just the unreal, the non-linearity corresponds to our inner world. Neither religions or faith, nor our psyche are either rational or truly tangible. Albert Einstein said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge, because knowledge has boundaries." Cognition and solutions of problems of the future lie within the combination of knowledge on one hand and imagination and creativity on the other hand.
