"Like butterflies", 60x80 cm, oil on canvas, 2010.
My old self portrait that I painted when I was 21. Little story about the fleeting... about what was in our lives long ago... but what's behind us. Butterfly is a symbol of death, a symbol of the soul. In my painting it is also a symbol of worry, a symbol of things that tormented us. Long ago they were difficult, now they are something else. They are with us as memories. They are troublesome for us but they are part of us. It is important, however, to see in them not only the hardships of life but also the positives that build us... :)
From this painting (that is, at the beginning of my studies) I became more interested in man, the human psyche. I have always been a person who likes to reflect on what humanity is, who a person is. I do not paint self-portraits because I consider myself narcissistic and see myself only. No, never in my life. When I paint myself I try to understand a person, a problem that is related to that person or to what and what surprises happen in the person's life. I pay attention to what builds us as people and who we are. I try to understand it. I do not focus only on myself. I am just a background to this, I take on the situation, I am involved in people and their emotions...
