Painting Installation

Painting installation.
Self-portrait. Self-destruction.
The main object of research is self-destruction. Every painting is decorated with real animal skin. The artwork is talking about love of slowly exterminating yourself. Even love to another being is based on distress, self-pity and provocation of pity. The main character is sheep was chosen because of it‘s stupidity and innocence. In the paintings even when sheep feels pain it experiences pleasure because provocation worked and pain hurts. All of these works have their own story, but also they are connected with one narrative. The main painting is self-portrait in fur, so the viewer wouldn't forget that the installation is self-centered.
Every painting was made with acrylic paint and on cheap brown paper to exagerate how meaningless destruction is, because the work in itself is very ironical.
