„How can an image, at times very unusual, appear to be a concentration of the entire psyche?“ is Gaston Bachelard’s question in the introduction of his book The Poetics of Space.

Through the prism of imagination, a physical space is dialectic to our inner experience. Cloud of perceptions, ideas, affects and endeavors often difficult to grasp, can be understood and processed just by building upon the duality of matter in space and a matter experiencing within us. To focus and break out of chaos not only the process of creation and formation plays a role, but an imagination and some experience of oneself through these created visual forms. Points, planes and lines are the allegory of human psyche, diagrams of psychology. The expression of continuous line, point concentration, surface expansion, their accumulation and combinations represent images of peace, relaxation, overload, concentrating or, on the contrary, not concentrating.

The transition of chaos to order passes through the rhythm, by dividing it into individual fragments, we allow it processing. Process of the work was a play in the field of feeling, thinking, skills and possibilities of a hands and material. A jewellery in this new space arises as if it arises naturally, it is not a goal, it is only one generation of many transformations. I am exploring my inner experience and describing shapes, layouts, properties of objects, and their expression in ‘my land’. The result is materialization of inner land, its a contemplative field of human psyche, personal and at the same time universal, something which had not been seen and has become visible.
