About this artwork
The motif is painted in oil in almost old master technique. As a background, the artist used a fabric that she has printed in rotary screen printing and sewn together from two parts.
The animal, which is actually rather small compared to humans, is enlarged according to the emotions it embodies. Its appearance draws all eyes to it and makes irritating details recede at first. At second glance, the eagle appears less realistic, but as an articulation of emotions very familiar to us. Under the surface, of the individual hovering in a moment of tension, hides the embodiment of anger, aggression, territorial claims.
It is difficult not to see the human in the eagle, while the animal seems threatening and attractive at the same time. Under the surface, the tension also arises from the contradiction abstract patterns in the printed background and the intense gaze of the painted individual.
