New series of illustrations – “Beautiful women”
The most recent is a series of illustrations called “Beautiful women”. It depicts women in glamorous poses in the 19th century and beginning of 20th-century fashion juxtaposed in different locations, interiors, cafes, streets, cities, or just on a colorful abstract background.
Each illustration portrays one woman but sometimes she is juxtaposed on multiple layers, in different positions, and multiplied. The way I see this is that there are many perspectives and views not only in the outside world but also inside us. Sometimes we might feel as if there are multiple personalities inside us and that makes life interesting and also complicated. There are moments when we can be looking into the future while longing for the past. Multiplying one drawing of a woman and juxtaposing her multiple images in a new composition on one page refers to this aspect of human awareness. Her physical beauty is here a reference to female inner beauty.
