CHEVALIÈRE, ALONE

Oil and tempera on canvas

2015

In this sinister puppet theater, the Red-hair anxiety consults Tarots for clarification of her future, yet without realizing all the information she receives is manipulated by her alter-ego, the Blue-hair voodoo witch. The game of manipulation between one person, two identities is nevertheless observed by a nonchalant outsider, who serenely flips the book page and turns over the story of morbid maneuver.


Impartial Drawings I-IV

I. China – I beg you, repair me!

II. U.S.A – Familiar smile, unfamiliar visage.

III. France – Why should we doubt the virgin white of fallen snow?

IV. Poland – But love? Not really.

Four drawings each measuring 12.5''x 10''

Ballpoint pen, ink, watercolor, painted frame

2014

A modern-day nomad, I have wandered about and lived extensively in different corners of the world. Each time I settle down in a new country, I have to battle against my preconceptions and struggle to see the reality of the new environment. This array of four drawings portrays partially true myths of the four countries I have lived in or studied: the Chinese paradox of conservatism and openness, the American obesity versus slimness, the French high fashion against everyday casualness, the historical Polish melancholy versus modernism.

Each portrait is captioned in the language I carried over from the previous experience.

I. China – Błagam, napraw mnie! (I beg you, repair me!)

II. U.S.A – 识靥未识面,比儡将作傀( Familiar smile, unfamiliar visage.)

III. France – Why should we doubt the virgin white of fallen snow?

IV. Poland – Mais l’amour? Pas vraiment. (But love? Not really.)


JEST W NAS

12.5''x 10''

Ballpoint pen, ink, watercolor, painted frame
