THERE IS A HOLE IN THE WORLD where YOU CAN ESCAPE

What is freedom and how people can manage the loss of freedom,
rights and security? I have studied the subject for a long time and I have
found some possibilities to escape from difficult circumstances and
stay mentally free and healthy.

My experience is that art is the point, kind of a hole in the whole world (earth) where you can escape: To me center of the white square consistes a circle – like a peephole. Inside of that peephole is the world with a central hole. To that hole I can dive and find my freedom. My thoughts are free and only mine.

The choice of materials are calculated and they symbolizes life and
death – wine and ink, red and black.
