I work a lot with the subject of human shame – shame about our own imperfect bodies, about actions, revolutionary ideas – and violence – whether moral, emotional or aesthetic. 

The significant parts of my work are about Christianity and religious dogma. I’m not a god-slayer. I believe in a Supreme Being and in the Universe. And I believe in the Human Being. I constantly question the dogmas we were so zealously raised on. These very rules have locked up our personality, our desires. Christianity exhorts us to behave, to pose. It forbids us to reveal our own ‘I’, our ego, showing us sin, punishment and inevitable hell.

I’m not trying to abuse these rules in my works. But I’m asking the viewer to see things from the other side. I’m asking for inner liberation of the individual from norms and laws. For one  reason alone – to realize our own integrity and beauty.

ARTWORKS

"Portrait of a Queen" N°0857

In this series I used the traditional subjects of Flemish portraits, Such as : portraits of Royal family, religious paintings, portraits of rich citizens or donator, portrait of Cardinal and self portrait of artist. In every image, there is an illusion, which helps the viewer to see an analogy with modern problems. the project discussed actual issues for the modern man: changing social values, attitude of people to religion, politics, morality etc. In every image there is a fragment with the mirror, it was done for the viewer , who can see himself in every portrait.
The protrait tells the story about human values. Portrait symbolizes humanity's dependence of politics and imaginary stability of the political system in the European Union.
