Artist says: "Winter is my favorite season. As a child, I liked to stay out until late night. Once I asked my parents to buy me an ice skates as present, because I wanted to learn to skate with them on the pond ice so badly. But my father told me, that if I want skates, then I have to buy them by myself. As skates was very expensive, I did no get them.

 

‘The Black Ice’ is a story of my dream to be on ice skates at night. Dream as abstract lines - skate left ruts in the ice - gives the human mind energies and impulses of life moving forward."
