The handwriting I use to check and verify things, including my emotions, organizing and clarifying them, has become a drawing animation. I usually create the animations alone in an enclosed space, just as I do when I paint.

It is not text, but a kind of diagram where I write down what I have seen, felt and thought about up to that point. I try to avoid untruths as much as possible.

But this is neither reality nor truth; it is an inner sea, an invisible distant sea. Good and negative things.

The act of affirmation involves an actual journey to a place. Creating art here in the Czech Republic is an experiment for myself. Local folk traditions, such as the Mardi Gras, have been very stimulating for me, as have the cities I have visited.

Drawing is strange letters.

When I see iconography in overlapping pastel strokes, I start to create works on canvas and for the first time I paint with the idea of "painting" in mind. I see this as painting from the trace of the shape of the tidal flat after the tide.

I would like to travel with the viewers to the invisible sea.
