The series called "Beach" is created sine 2008 and consist more then 50 pictures. The artist said: "It is a try to stop the moment from the place which is especially important for me - calm and dynamism let me feel lonely alone and be the part of the crowd at the same time. Beach is a place where I can observe people: their behavior, gestures but stil I am also the person who could be observed. Beach is a place where we are looking for calm and relax, trying to find some privite space with our towels. It is a curious place where we are so tiny in relation to the areas around. The beach gives me peace of mind as well as paintig."
