The painting “Crowds” attempts

to capture the unity and diversity

of human experience, perception

within the framework of collective consciousness.


Each of these small geometric objects represents eyes. Pairs of eyes looking

at the viewer from various directions. Individuals in the crowd, with unique experiences and perspectives. Looking and seeing differently, but together forming a collective unity.


It's an attempt to depict the human capacity for coexistence despite individual differences. It tells a story about the fading boundaries between the individual and society, between individuality and collective consciousness.


The author encourages reflection

on how individuals contribute

to the greater whole and how they influence our perception of the world

as a collective unity. It prompts

the viewer to consider their own place

in the world and their relationships

with others.


The composition is intense

and full – the figures occupy almost

the entire available space, reflecting

the nature of a crowd, where individuals are close to each other and often merge into one mass. “Crowds” also encourage reflection on our place in society, our individuality in the context of the group, and the boundaries between personal and public, between loneliness and being in a community.
