«Park» series, paper, pastel, A3 format
I started working on a series of drawings and videos during my artist residence in Rome in January-February 2022.
I got the idea during walks in the parks, of which there are many in Rome.
I noticed that newly installed LED lights often flash when their lifespan is coming to an end, and then an interesting mysterious effect of changing reality occurs.
Darkness, light, and shadows are a long-standing interest of the artists.
A shadow is not just darkness behind objects or people in an image. It is the one that gives objects volume so that the image seems to come to life. Shadow does not exist without an object.
I draw situations in parks through the shadows, which can trigger the imagination in the dark, which can be scary but on closer inspection turns out to be just a bush.
