"Landscape for me is a peculiar niche. Nature sketch is not just a study is not an exercisefor a hand and eye but a possibility for seclusion, a possibility for I dialog with myself, a possibility for a deep esthetic feeling. I enjoy painting city views indeed, not newly-erected buildings but still streets, old houses created by people and for people. "Two steps from fuss" – my works cycle, made in our city streets. You will not usually see people or cars at my pictures. They are not narrative but are contemplative.. contemplation is impossible on the run. Just have stopped or turned to walk, stayed, a new environment, something new can be seen. And then there is no rubbish and dirt , ruins and disorder, no noise and anxiety, and the city of harmony, air and feelings arises instead of it”.
