One and Multiple

Beginning with my master project, entitled “One and Multiple,” my artistic quest became a representation of individual and personal juxtaposed gazes, on the background of the cultural paradigms that these gazes belong to. My thinking is: a person is born, they integrate into society, and begins to be ”de-responsible” , meaning, they begin to take things for granted; this represents the multiple in my works; and the one is represented by my own searches and symbols.

The purpose of this project was to conclude that the “one and the multiple” are closely linked, namely: the individual cannot break the socio-cultural paradigm or any other paradigm without integrating into another existing paradigm. In the “One and Multiple” project, the produced works became a “portrait” describing images “as seen” by me. Seeing in a greater sense than just cognitive, so my self-portrait is not a classic, figurative one, but a “face” made up of different images-moments.
