“Ad Lucem/Transposition’’
140 × 100 cm, serigraphy/ digital print, 2020


I veil the female nude with transparent raster. This optical treatment causes an interesting dependency – the presented figure becomes simplified, its detail fades out, and the body covers in mystery. When observed from a few meters distance, the work regains legibility, unveiling much more than at a close look.

Our visual perception is an intellectual process. We act according to a personalized psychological filter, where the subconscious interpretation of what we see is based on a collection of our visual, intellectual and emotional experiences. Essentially, we are unable to separate the analysed object from the imposed veil/filter, as it becomes part of a complex subjective process of perception, and we therefore remain in the world of illusion it has created. We are covered by perceptive calques and we internalize them.
