The drawing "The innocent smell of the Sun" is my self-portrait. The figure is wearing a traditional, embroidered white shirt and her hair is braided, which symbolizes the artist's cultural background. However, we cannot see the face of the figure and her facial expression. My works' reality falls between the boundary of the real and imaginary world and fuses elements from both. This creates a poetic sensibility that often feels dreamlike. I am often staging or adding to already existing scenes to create my compositions. The metaphors and symbols that appear in my works come from my own experience of longing for a homeland and Slavic culture, which consists of rituals involving worshipping the elemental grandeur of nature.
