‘Places’ is a selection of paintings depicting mostly the outline of cities where people are just an anonymous point in the landscape. We can only guess what emotions they are experiencing and what relations are between them. The observer just captures moments stood still in time. Stillness, apparent in every piece , is not only just an emotional state but also a tool to explore the aesthetic form. Aiming at a synthesis and removing unnecessary details is meant to guide the essence of surrounding reality and perceived impressions. As a result the theme is one of emergence, a reason to discover ourselves, our emotions and needs.
