Director Statement

A painting is a result, an endpoint and a new starting point at the same time. The paint layers placed on the top of one another record all the moments of concentration following one another. The end result of the creative process stops time virtually; thus this “timeless” object concentrates the observer’s time, or in this case, attention, and by doing so, it invites the observer to get to know their special, “thick” existence. But where does the picture
invite and lead the observer? Why can this unique phenomenon get born at all? One of the most important questions for me is how the inner journey of theobserver, which is a response to the call of the picture, meets the artist’s journey leading outside, the visible mold of which is the picture. How far can we talk about identical, or at least mutual experience? Is there a metaphysical point where the contemplation of the artist and the observer overlap?
In both cases, we can essentially talk about inner motions, the motions of visual thinking and perception: imagination, concentration or even the “astonishment” beyond conscious concentration. As I was interested in the emergence of these, “I had to move” the painting. For this, I started to use the results of contemporary animation-making and extend them
with new methods if possible in order to visualize the different depths and levels of eyesight. With the help of animation, I can reconstruct these phases of the creative process, which -
in case I manage to reach the the aim of examination - eventually creates a new piece of art, making the mind flow toward the recognition of existence more transparent.
