About Me

Ukrainian-Irish artist and my tangled lines paintings.

I am a Ukrainian-Irish artist living in Ireland for more than 20 years. All my life I have been engaged in art as a hobbyist.  A few years ago I finally decided to dedicate all my time to art. Just then I started to develop my style with long tangled lines. The works of the Ukrainian artist – Ivan Marchuk – Irish – Jim Fitzpatrick – and American Jackson Pollock – had a big influence on me. My style is a combination of them styles: ‘drip and splash’ of Jackson Pollock, plyontanism of Ivan Marchuk, and Celtic art. Also, it is a combination of tangled threads of my mother’s knitted clothes and my father’s tangled fishing line which he tried to untangle for hours. It was influenced by both countries where I lived and their culture, and art such as Irish lace and Ukrainian embroidery. I named my style – tangled lines painting. What are tangled lines? It is a layering of thin long tangled impasto lines of paint, which create a 3d picture by tangling with each other. Tangled lines have their own special characteristic. The look of the paintings changes and you can see different effects from different distances and different angles as the lines create different shades of colour.

I work with painting, drawings, metal sculpting, especially repoussé and chasing, wood carving, and making handmade carved frames. You can find some of my new work and follow what I am currently creating on my Facebook page.
