Water paintings are processual work which apper by an automatic operation. It is, therefore, a partial-controlled process, of addition, elimination and substitution. Liquid paint and water are searching its combinations of micro patters just as soil and water do at the macro scale around the planet. Patterns of water shape the environment by the »laws« of chemical reactions.

Miniatures of water or diluted color is paving its way around the canvas. Therefore, this paintings are water pathways, shapes and textures, created on the micro scale. Each application is a new layer, new image, which leaves a trail and a stain. Liquid pigment creats water landscapes, shapes and textures. Imaginate autogenic process of painting is spontaneous, partially intuitively managed process of creating stains.
It is necessary to be disciplined, nevertheless, a disciplined author must master the technique of automatism, so that water can spill and curve as it does on a macro scales in order to create its landscapes; a sensational and evocative art. At the same time an essence of a processual art lies precisely in the anthropological ties with its origin. Creation of an anti-form connects us back to earth, basic elements of nature, where any form disintegrates and merges into a new form. This leads to the occurrence of stains, which decompose or combines as all biological processes. Reminding us of the chemical reactions of each element. Beside acrylics, there is a washing pouder which helps to represent elimination and substitution.
