It is important for me to investigate the state of the psyche when it is transformed under an influence of some factors leading to severe conditions and to investigate everything that may be associated with this. How loneliness distorts our consciousness: the consequences of social isolation.The expression "mentally ill" causes particular associations in us. Learning that a particular person has a psychiatric diagnosis we involuntarily start to look for traits in his character associated with his condition. Our ideas about the mentally ill create a kind of "filter" that prevents us from perceiving the person directly. Our attitude towards him becomes prejudiced. Our perspective of what is characteristic for mentally ill people vary widely. But the most important representations are those that are most widespread in a particular society. They are part of this society’s mentality and form a particular stigma in psychiatry. The stigmatization of mentally troubled persons may be regarded as an additional factor with respect to their condition. Stigma not only worsens their social adaptation and leads to the reduction in the quality of life. A large number of patients with relatively mild mental disorders suffer from stigmatization to a much greater extent than from the manifestations of the diseases themselves. An important topic for me - mental transformation of a person, its internal states and encounter with an unspoken, an attempt to visualize internal psychological conditions and heavy feeling. The question that occupies my mind is how much our dark, complex facet shapes us and how this side is shaped by our environment. It seems important to me to draw attention to such a study of oneself when we are alone with ourselves. The questions that holds me and on which I want to inspire the viewer to reflect - is how does our social environment shape us? How does our personality forms a tension with the environment? Can social isolation (natural, artificial or forced) lead to irreversible changes in thinking and perception? How our psyche is transformed by the states of an obsessive neurosis? How much does our personality forms a deep, hidden side? In other words, what is the relationship between an environment, our conscious self and our unconsciousness. I devote almost all of my work to the study of human boundaries and transitional states, mutations, injuries and suppressed desires. In the center of my work there are always transformations, mental and physiological. Insanity, psychic transformation, obsessive neurosis, melancholy, rejection, anguish, fear, loneliness, violence (psychological and sexual), isolation, death and desire of it. I feel a real need to encourage an audience to think. Trying to immerse them in a state, a feeling is what I strive for. I do not want my work to present another form of beauty or harmony, but for me it's important to disturb the viewer, absorb him, shock him and make him feel uncomfortable, turn to his own hidden thoughts, which he did not normally do. The questions I work with are largely personal, tabooed, or ignored - I want to draw attention to them. It is me personal quest to encounter and study and learn from the Shadow, as Carl Gustav Jung would call it.
