“Libraries” are the visual representation of places hidden inside literary, mystical texts. The paintings are suggestions for placing impossible libraries in these locations. While the images were being shaped, I considered the scenes in which the given scholar or writer lived, with an eye on his biography and writings.
Painting is like looking in the mirror; watching an unreachable place. The difference is that the viewer imagines the painting’s space behind her back and herself somewhere inside the painting. The painter and the artist both desire to enter and intervene in each other’s space. In “Location,” I have imagined myself inside paintings of Romantic era, with a skeptical approach to the ideals of the era that are still floating around in our heads.
