Fake glasses, banana and my buzzcut.
I was doing a research about American photographer Cindy Sherman. Cindy Sherman is best known for her self-portraits. I fell in love in her work.
I was hit by photographic-inspiration after reading about her.
These self-portraits reflect my inner feeling living in the world of absurdity and suffering from information overflow ( I watch too much news on TV) and I just wanted to switch off my logic and normality (ha ha if I have it of course) and be just a normal narrow minded idiot. 😀
I woke him up to show the first snow.
The waking up process is so sweet, slow and beautiful…. He is still my little baby. 🙂
The man stands in the toilet.
I pictured the moment before his death. He stands in the toilet and realises that his beautiful dreams, good life expectations are flushed down in the toilet and he doesn’t have anything to show to the God. All poor man’s life’s ”beauty” can be seen- he is dressed in underwear, caught in the place and time when he didn’t expect to be seen. He lived his life only to comfort himself, ate greasy fast food and played games, drunk too much beer, watched TV and so on. But you can see- he has the most beautiful wide opened eyes in the world. This is his naive and childish mind. The God is looking at him down from above – on the powerless and weak man. I don’t know what happened to Leonid later. To me the most interesting thing is just a couple seconds before his death. How will man react when the time has come? What does he have to show to the God? We don’t have anything, we are weak and empty. Most of people are. And nothing is worth- money, power, and pride. It is worth nothing. Then you are just little embarrassing bug with those wide opened naive eyes.
This is one of my first paintings. I didn’t have any experience or knowledge how to paint. I had this idea very strong in my mind and I just wanted to paint it.
I have one unwritten essay today (and some just tiny, tiny pile of undone work too ) Actually I love to finish all my work for college on time. If I have to write some piece of work, it has to be done on time. But what’s happening?
All my good intentions ended up very quickly. As soon as I understood HOW IT WORKS, I finally did it! Today I set up the shop all by my own! (super super excited lady jumping on one leg around the computer chair) I am new on WordPress and I am learning how to use it just step by step. I am not good at it, really. I would rather spend time all day writing essays than blogging about my poor knowledge about the wordpress lol. So yes, I am adding my paintings and drawings in the shop and probably I will spam around on social websites.
Had a nice walk couple of days ago, just five minutes to walk from the place where I live.
I post this just because I would like to share with you some photos from that evening.
