“Umbrella” is a depiction of close interpersonal relationships. Relationships between a mother and child, friends, sisters… human connections.


The umbrella is a metaphor

for the boundaries we are capable

of setting to protect our personal

and emotional spaces. This painting reflects personal territory and boundaries that everyone has. Each their own.

It's a story about how people create their own emotional

and psychological spaces, both

for protection and for expressing their own identity.


The author explores the complexity

of interpersonal relationships

in the context of the need to protect oneself, others, and privacy, as well as the emotional and social aspects

of creating and adhering to these boundaries. It prompts reflection

on our personal boundaries and their impact on interactions with others.
