Tarabilda approaches narrativity in an intuitive manner. He often provokes the viewers into constructing their own individual stories based on personal experience. His latest works eschew faithful representation (reproduction) of reality, preferring instead to extend (shape) it in different materials and media, creating new meanings and features of things and phenomena.
