SPIRIT OF EPHEMERALITY
This piece portrays the complexity of human beings. Often it is believed that one feature is enough to characterise and classify a person, however, humans are intricate. The beauty of the woman is guessable but elusive. When viewing the artwork closely you are still distant, and when you are distant you nevertheless feel close. The obvious impenetrability, the intangible, the unclear, the secrecy, and the mystery behind this picture provokes different emotions within the observer. The image functions as a projection screen for one’s own desires and hopes, anxieties and fears, feelings and values. One’s own thoughts and ideas are reflected in the person portrayed. Finally, the observation becomes ruminant, and the observer comes to terms with their emotions.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
I have always been passionate about exploring new methods and ideas in art. Over the years, I have broadened my creative sense by experimenting with various painting and drawing media, as well as photography and digital art techniques. As I progressed with alternative approaches, my ability to express creativity, visualize ideas and create thoughtful art pieces flourished. Fine art photography, in particular, opened an outlet for my growing creative expression. I love to collect and harness ideas from everywhere, even using subjects that may seem unimpressive or even insignificant. Inspiration seems to come relatively easy to me as I create through emotion and give careful thought to every stage of the process—all emotions count, from disturbing through to beauty, from contempt to enjoyment. My ultimate goal is to evoke feelings and inspiration through my work, allowing the viewer to see the world, society, and everyday life through critical eyes, and to promote and evaluate dichotomy.
