The New Adam, 2011

With this above-life size figure of man I was inspired by biblical story of Adam. My main aim was to express the story about Adam without atributes, only on the base of body language and gestures. I do not display him fallen as result of sin but renewed through faith in Jesus Christ. I depict the man who takes step in faith, experience exemption and restoration.

Prophet II., 2015

In case of portrait of Prophet II. hanging picture with vertically elongated optical fibers was created on which drawing of prophet face in stylized outlines is engraved. Iluminated drawing of face is created by breaking fibers. The conception of work is based on symbolic level. When viewer stands in front of the image optical fibers automatically light up. Biblical prophets are understood to be those who carrry the light and iluminate the scripture. Spectator sees the portrait which at the same time iluminates prophetic texts behind fibers. Prophet becomes medium, cable, channel  for which it is important that his starting point is as close as possible to the source. Then the data flow of light  is the strongest.

Cult, 2008

The cult of mamony is becoming  the symbol of freedom, piece, unconcerned and successful life. We rush for property and money which should be the symbol of success but in the end they put us into slavery and unfreedom.

Outstanding, 2009

October 14, 2008, I underwent a surgical extraction of wisdom tooth. During hospitalization I had time to think about wisdom. I exhibit tooth like museum piece, like one that became the important one. By flashing I want to express pain but also stop sign or any stopping. I try to point out the people who walked their own path and were cut off due to lack of understanding.
