Photography of "nothing"
Some time ago (exactly in 1970 - 1973) I - in spite of all conceptual artists - occupied myself with transgressing various kinds of creational notions that became manifest thanks to our imagination. I was able then, releasing consciously energetic emision of fluido-magnetic radiation, to obtain freely configured photographic astral images.
So I had been recording with great passion images of our thoughts, emotional exultations, portraits of presumed friends and narrative images of real or fictitious events ...
Not being constrained by anything I was in clouds which now are subject of my new works. The photographs from series "The skies of assumptive time" are continuation of my own art program aiming at going beyond human imaginations. It is persistent quest after energetic images. It is humble approval that in fact they come to existence by themselves and our role is only to take them into consideration as a new fantastic possibility.
