Used quotes from the engraving of Albrecht Durer "Walk"
Dürer's contemporaries perceived the image of death (skeletons, the dead) as a "dead self" - a double of a living person. For Dürer's contemporaries, death was not something distant. They constantly felt the invisible presence of death. In Dürer's work "The Walk" this presence
not just perceptible, it is natural and inevitable. Modern man drives away thoughts of death and strives to live as long as possible. He wants to be an embryo, that is, to be the beginning,
who doesn't know what the end is.
Above - "Dead Self", from the chest there is a guide, which is refracted in an hourglass and strives into a "pixel" baby. Golden guides, in a place with endless
circles - form a watch dial. Time is constant, it is ruthless even for a baby. "Pixel" baby - a new time, a new perception, a new person ..
The painting was created for the exhibition, the concept of which is a rethinking of Albrecht Durer's engraving "Walk".
