Brief Contemplations from the Indoors
These works are, as their names imply, a series of reflections and attempts at answering self-imposed (yet necessary in the context) questions rooted in the recent global events and their resulting in confinement.
Trying times invite to the type of contemplations about life, death, and the absurd fragility of one’s existence which most of us would otherwise not entertain on a regular basis. That type of mindset (possibly somewhat similar to that which any writer after a war, or any other fatality, for that matter, inherently adopted when sitting to write) has led to very inward, soul-searching behaviours, which, at their turn (and together with the spatial limitations of not being able to access my studio and larger-scale supplies), have then led to the creation of several series of small format collages, poems, and doodles.
