About the piece
Realism of reflection. lnterest in learning particularities of structures and architectonics of urban landscape brought to creation a series of artwork in which the main component is reflection. Objects reflecting through windows of the city become multi-layered configurations which draw contact with items behind the glass. As a result this creates a complex conglomerate consisting of multiple abstract constructive elements and linear spaces which finally enriches our imagination of reality and builds a flat canvas transforming it into a piece of art - realistic painting. The spectator sees what's happening behind them and physically ends up between reality and reflection.
