About this artwork

. I perceive a woman as a symbol of not only Divine beauty and sensuality but also the greatest torments and individual sufferings of a human being in general. The associative representation of the crucifix seemed suitable for the embodiment of my meaning and artistic idea.
I have already pointed to the meaning idea, and the artistic idea sought power, drama, dynamics, as it were, Baroque excitement. The slanting grey masses are an associative representation of architecture as a symbol of urban, contemporary, point to the civilization issue of anxiety and alienation. The red colour of the body was not accidentally chosen. I wanted to bare the human figure as much as possible, not only to make it naked, to the skin but also to go beyond, conditionally speaking, under the skin and to show the body as a flesh.
I want to throw my truth to the observer’s face, to provoke his courage to face his own truth (especially if it is disturbing and dreadful). I do not want to impose my opinion on anybody; I just want to provoke the observer to dialogue.
