FROM HERE TO REALITY
Series of drawings lined up in several columns, forming a graph. Drawings are made using different pencils on the pieces of old newspapers, previously used for wiping ink from a plate in a deep printing process, then dried and saved for rainy days. Apart from the whole, individual drawings do not have any artistic pretensions: they are the result of an attempt of their author to IMAGINE, then VISUALIZE the solutions of "REAL" problems and realizations of "TRUE" wishes. These visions are made on coloured hand prints by their author in order to influence "lines of fortune" and come true. Drawings related to the same wish form a column. The order of columns is changeable, as well as the order of drawings in a column. The purpose of arranging them this way is to RANGE and EVALUATE these particular wishes, which, by the way, are mostly extremely pragmatic. The verbal formulation of each of them is at the bottom of each column.

|It looks as if I attract money somehow: we always have enough of it, I give it away easily and it constantly comes back - like circulating energy.
