About work:

We can learn a lot about the thinking and the lifestyle of the ancient Greeks from the vases they used to decorate with various patterns and drawings that depicted everyday life, war, mythology, etc. My composition of vases functions as an allegory to that: vases that resemble the Greek ones in their forms, colors, and patterns, become a tool to reveal the categorical evaluation of art. Artworks are labelled with no regard to their real worth. The public opinion is being manipulated, the notion that a work of art should only be interpreted directly and that it must be “beautiful” is being formed.
