30*30cm, cotton stretched canvas, 2022. Oil, canvas, mixed media. The artwork is signed on the back and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity. The canvas is stretched on a wooden frame and artwork is ready to hang. Framing is not required. When I started working on this series, I put a number of symbols into it. I had separate reasons for using ornament and glitch distortion; the female body, symmetrically reflected relative to the vertical, as in a mirror; black and white for a new abstract entity. I can tell something about each element, from these bricks I built my concept. But what I absolutely could not foresee was the reaction of the viewer. My symmetrical reflections became a Rorschach test. "The subject is invited to give an interpretation of ink blots that are symmetrical about the vertical axis. Each such figure serves as a stimulus for free associations - the subject must name any word, image or idea that occurs in him. The test is based on the assumption that what the individual" sees "in the blot , is determined by the characteristics of his own personality "(Wikipedia). The viewers' opinion set new accents, and I realized that this series is about objectification. Objectification implies abstraction from all other qualities. The pictures in the paintings are simple. They are composed of symmetrically reflected female figures. This. Just. Reflections. But they see in them what they are used to seeing. As in the spots of a psychological test. Get what you are used to getting. Objectification. As an artist, I didn't have to think about how to define a phenomenon that I consider to be sick and painful. The phenomenon has identified itself. I am pleased that I was able to identify and document this reaction with my work. "The objectification of women is defined as ignoring the personal and intellectual capacities and abilities of a woman and reducing the value and role of women in society to an instrument for sexual gratification" (Wikipedia).
