The work is inspired by the traditional symbol of Kanatitza.
This is the graphic motif behind the figure, which is a very ancient symbol known all over the world. In Bulgarian tradition it is used to portray the unity between the female and male energies, the center of the motif is where the actual dualism exists, the balance between yin and yang.
The figure on front is wearing multiple masks and multiple layers of clothing, but INSIDE, where there is nothing else but the creative force. I am using threads coming out of the inside as a way of visually describing the “weaving” of oneself.
With this work I want to create the feeling of “darkness and emptiness” embodied in layers of fabric and colours, thus creating a balance.
