Naive & Folk
Comment to the artwork:
Wooden sculpture which has inspired me for this work, I have seen at my friend, Moscow writer Alexey Pavlovskiy. I was amazed with a combination of ideally polished face and the raw branches acting from a head reminding horns. Eyes of the girl have been a little oblique that is characteristic for many traditional African styles, in particular, for a sculpture of a Nigerian nationality Ife . In some African tribes of the woman carry similar headdresses, to find out to what culture the figurine concerns more precisely, it was not possible.
After I have found out, that such sculptures give brides, with a wish of execution of dream. I did understood, that the raw tree of horns are ideas on the future, dreams of the girl which are still formed.
The form reminds some images Egyptian goddess Isida and other gods of the Egyptian pantheon, for strengthening this similarity I have drawn the moon between horns. In patterns dreams, animal plants and people are ciphered.
