SELF SHADOW 

2020 digital 15x24 cm

Caravaggio’s straightforwardness of correspondence to his dark side encouraged me to build up my self-portrait story. The story must begin only now in the time of isolation. It is maybe the time for a bit of everyone to re-evaluate their life and their self-image. All together we are experiencing being ‘self’, being distance being away, being alone. Contemporariness of Caravaggio was his purity of storytelling. Self-portrait of an artist is where the very story begins for looking at self. To me, isolation only could bring the need of looking at myself and finding the courage to share with the connected world outside without afraid of finding the shadow of me.
