This quote illustrates what happened in my studio while looking at old and failed paintings. I cut them into smaller pieces and started to work on them using dry media such as oil pastels.Landscapes emerged. Intuition intervened. And I created five small ‘Dream ladscapes’:

I love to make small ,experimental pieces. I often highlight them by adding some glitter glue, metallic paint and most recently iridiscent colors.My newest discovery are DYNA paints made by Pebeo, a French manufacturer of oil and acrylic paints.

This was a difficult piece that went through many transformations: from realistic oil of three roses, to geometric abstraction and to this final NAR3 or Pomegranate3.Pure oil technique was enhanced with crayon resist papers that provided a collaged texture.Here is a visual history of this painting,started in 2009 in Tokyo, Japan and recently completed in Podgorica,Montenegro:
I like drawing directly with permanent marker on canvas.
Beware of white! The white almost killed the painting.I always lighten colors with other transparent colors.However, here I thought that white could unify the compositional elements…
And final stage:
NAR3 (Pomegranate3) oil collage on canvas,102x81 cm, 2013
I started working on this small painting in 2009 while living in Japan. The starting point was an autumn scene of deep red-orange-brown leaves that I noticed somewhere in the park. I never quite like the composition nor the realistic rendering of nature parts. I put the painting aside and repainted it many times. Later, I added three mirror pieces, simplified the composition and removed all realistic shapes.
Recently, I rediscovered the painting again and this time I knew how to finish it: deep ultramarine tissue papers as well as cool metallic sheets were added to enhance the color scheme and overall composition.
‘The three mirrors’, completed in November 2013 was inspired by nature far away and long time ago. Although abstract in style, it is in fact a painting about my family. We are the three mirrors.
'The painter who draws merely by practice and by eye, without any reason, is like a mirror which copies every thing placed in front of it without being conscious of their existence.’
