Lives and works in Bratislava, Slovakia.

My works explore the concept of landscape beyond a simple traveler’s routine. There is a strong longing after return to a simpler life from past, a life closer to the nature. Forgetting all about demands of busy urban life that keep us from clear perception. I seek quietness. In my personal ritual of extreme physical activity I explore and look for abandoned places, move towards a peaceful state of mind.

My fascination lies in dynamics of landscape, the unpredictability of weather and changes of the face of land over time. A fascination with places untouched by civilizations that linger in time for centuries.
