About 6 years ago I began my art research about hidden faces inside modern society. I called this project Transaction. I look through different edges of the society: social, politic and etc. “Transaction” by Wiki is a financial transaction, an agreement, communication, or movement carried out between a buyer and a seller to exchange an asset for payment.
The philosophy of art transaction arose as a reaction to the cult of the "Golden calf" of the generations of the 80's - 00’s, thereby, in the opinion of transaction, put people in the condition of loss of spiritual realities and propaganda "hidden faces".
Faceless and sketchy images of people imply humans as the source of an endless transaction.
The philosophy of #TransactionArt is reinforced by the disclosure of the theme of patriarchy in our world.
Under the pressure of gender stereotypes and under certain circumstances they are forced to wear masks, closing the true face, their true nature, their natural strength and character, being scared of condemnation from the society and rejecting them as individuals with their own way of life and their big goals, plans and thinking. Women become impersonal, at the same time being in an incessant race with men for the right to victory and on the other hand constantly struggling with stereotypes imposed on us in childhood, school, by our parents and friends. It's difficult, but not impossible.
I believe in a bright future without stereotypes and gender interference in our lives. Therefore, I bring to your attention mym art works on this topic, and how I overcome this problem by myself.
