In this series of works I am thinking about people and their complex relationships. I painted contemporary society as bunches of bodies churned up in the space, whereby I left the room for different interpretations and ambiguous meanings. Often is hard to distinguish between a battle, explosion, ritual dance and orgy.
Inspiration was one of my favourite Goya's Caprichos (below), as well as my own experiences. Additionally, I had on my mind movies "Zabriskie Point" (M. Antonioni) and "Swimming with Sharks" (G. Huang), after which is one painting named.
