Close - Front

“Close – Front” from the “Limits” series is a work that subtly explores the themes of closeness, intimacy, and boundaries. Utilizing a muted color palette, the composition of two symmetrical forms creates an atmosphere of tranquility and focus.


The painting is an invitation to reflect on our own perception of personal space and the way we define it. How we experience closeness in relationships with others.


The figures, facing each other, symbolize direct interaction and communication, contrasting with the painting “Close – Back” This conveys a message that in interpersonal relationships, boundaries can serve both as barriers and bridges to deeper understanding and empathy.
