Play or art?

The series Play or art? presents a multilayered world of internal experience, which becomes an inspiration for the world translated into paintings. It has resulted from my personal conflict with painting – hence the perverse title. I have captured desires, the desire to escape, struggles, fears in fanciful aesthetics, which turn out to be helpful in processing emotions.
