Girl with her head down

The painting “Girl with her head down” from the “Borders” series combines abstraction with the suggestion

of a human figure. The lines are clean

and clear, defining forms that determine the human shape.


The composition of the painting

is deliberately balanced, with a dominant central element that attracts attention and suggests both strength

and powerlessness of the figure.

The space around the figure is open

and uniform, which may reflect a state

of isolation or deep introspection.

The viewer has the opportunity

to empathize with the emotional state

of the character, who may express melancholy. The posture of the figure leans, perhaps over the world? It creates a kind of umbrella. Who will it protect under it?


The author addresses the complexity

of human experiences and resilience, which often transcend established boundaries.


It is therefore both a study of emotions and an analysis of interpersonal relationships, expressed through

an abstract form.
