I often see the sky as a global canvas covered with an abstract image. At any moment, the free expressive gestures, thin transparent or dense pastuous layers of color, the various plans, the sfumato, the whole spectrum of colors, the contrast of light and darkness, drama and gentle feelings are replacing each other. It seems that it is enough to look at the sky and learn everything about painting.
But the skies in my pictures are crossed by transmission lines and wires, concrete blocks of buildings, sometimes a tree. Forms of human creations awkwardly impose themselves to the image that nature creates, in order to indicate the presence of man, his aspiration to perfection, monumental, control and impermanence, which at the same time distance him from his own essence. Often in the struggle, instead of in cooperation with nature, we do not notice our fragility and transience, we do not see the moments, nor the countless images that emerge and disappear above our heads in the eternal sky. (M. E)

 

Nebo često posmatram kao globalno platno prekriveno apstraktnom slikom. U svakom momentu smenjuju se slobodni ekspresivni potezi, lazurni slojevi, različiti planovi, sfumato, gusti pastuozni nanosi, čitav spektar boja, kontrasti svetla i tame, drama i nežna osećanja. Čini se da je dovoljno pogledati u nebo i naučiti sve o slikarstvu.
Ali, neba na mojim slikama presecaju dalekovodi i žice, betonski blokovi zgrada, poneko drvo. Oblici ljudskih tvorevina nezgrapno se nameću spram slike prirode, kako bi ukazali na čovekovo prisustvo, njegovo stremljenje ka savršenstvu, monumentalnosti, kontroli i neprolaznosti, što ga istovremeno udaljava od sopstvene suštine. Često u borbi, umesto u saradnji sa prirodom, ne primećujemo svoju krhkost i prolaznost, ne uviđamo trenutke, ni bezbroj slika koje nastaju i nestaju iznad naših glava na večnom nebu. (M. E)
