When we are kids, clouds are shaping into mysterious figures and sandboxes become whole universes. As the time goes by we stop seeing things that are not that obvious.
We are constantly matching the image that we see with our visual database thus losing the ability to use our imagination and create something new.
Our imagination is capable of much more, it just needs to be guided.
While processing any image our brain is comparing it to its visual database. When no exact match is found it is the time for creative imagination to kick in. Using abstract elements from the painting it can create new objects and scenarios within the canvas. As a result these images are injected with unique viewer’s perception creating personal relevance and meaning

It is important for me to interact with imagination through abstract forms, colors and lines, giving it the possibility to unleash its potential and to become part of the process. Rotation of these paintings can provide imagination with even more options while abstract titles help to avoid strict frameworks
