Goemetry of Coincidence 

In my painting I have struggled with coincidence. Making forms geometric is my way of escaping the Chaos. As the element of coercion is inherent to geometry, it compels to surrender to the superior necessity, thus allows to control the fear of the Incomprehensible and the Unpredictable. Geometric figure is a perfect sign – a symbol that refers us from the material world to the world of ideas; I try to find it in objects and situations of everyday life.
