Paintings on text
Showcased works are a part of the "Transformation in the name of Prévert" series. The main idea behind the overpainted artworks on reclaimed book paper is to visualize the process of transformation and change, from the old to the new layers that, just as in life, keep getting on top of one another, until the present is formed, waiting to be one day transformed again. For the Transformation series, I chose to use pages from a book by French poet Jacques Prévert - a book that has been passed down in my family for 3 generations of women, in Slovak translation.
The upscale of this series is the use of personal writings as a painting surface, similarly as in "Transformation" works - the project is currently in progress for an autumn 2022 Artist Residency at DUPLEX AiR in Lisbon, Portugal. The paintings will follow soon.
