A series of four paintings that go by the name “Postcards”. These
are still life oil paintings on canvas, finished using mixed media
technique, resulting in a collage. You can see scraps of old
letters, postcards and stamps, handwriting, drawings and ink
splashes, clay details - a snake, eyes and tears, some of them even
have embroidered faces. And then you see large areas of black paint
covering some parts of these paintings. So what do they symbolise?
Postcards are a very sentimental form of communication.
This is a message from our past selves to future soul mates who will
one day receive or have received the postcard we sent. By sending a
postcard we are performing an action of trying to stop time and
eternalise our minds. But time is merciless and has its own rules.
In the end, everything materialistic object will disappear, no
matter how hard we try to preserve it. The black color in these
paintings symbolises decay and the inevitable flow of time. These
paintings already started to disappear in this moment and as time
goes by, devouring any thought, any object and any art piece turning
it into black eternal nothing.
