For me painting is a way to be free, witnessing what is coming from inside me without trying to understand it. Not to be captured by other people’s conceptions. Release my mind. Over and over again going through that very specific – creative – process that cannot be described in words. You experience the importance and weight of it when you are there.
I paint because I want to, it makes absolute sense to me, there is nothing else that can replace painting and the feeling I get from it. It is not fun, it is not a hobby; sometimes, I feel it is the only real thing in my life. It is a flash of absolute freedom.
I was born in the Czech Republic but London gave me an opportunity to find/uncover this unique part of myself.
