Usually, the place where I live at any given moment, with its daily routines, dicatets the choice of my subject matter. As a rule, I am interested in the objects of everyday life, which appear to be surprisingly uniform wherever you go. In my work, they unite collective and personal experience. I never recycle real objects in a manner of an assemblage, but rather present my own associative, monumentalized interpretation of their form. My choice of medium and mode of craftsmanship both suggest underlying narrative context, but also provide monumental quality of architecture to my works. My objects are reduced to a gallery format, but I see them as large-scale urban sculptures evocative of common human activities.
