The Breath of The City, 2017

1x1cm

The mezzotint series “The Breath of The City” includes ten works.


Dimensions variable


The aim of the work is to force the viewer to see the fine details in the fragment and to visualize the common objects in ones thoughts, to get acquainted with their “story”. At the first glance it may seem that this is just a blotch or the brush stroke, but in a detailed glance a completely different world appears.
Cities have things and objects that are forgotten, but they still exist in our environment. These are abandoned buildings and things that are no longer touched by the human hand, but a passage of the time. They have their own aura, history, life, stories, which has been changed and influenced by the time. The most beautiful thing in these objects is the time-consuming result. The viewer gets not only aesthetic pleasure, but also focuses on the hidden message of the masterpiece.
