The series was created as a homage to Joseph Beuys. He wanted to heal the world with art, and his principle was: "Every human being is an artist". In this respect, my artworks provides insights into Beuys' thinking lab and, with a wink, show what it takes to awaken the artist in every human being. The doubling of the female figure and her simultaneous negative and positive portrayal contributes to blurring the naturalism of the representation and reinforcing the meanings inherent in the image. Every picture is a lyrical approach to subjective visions, something that lies beneath the reality.
