My most recent paintings are reflecting on the shift of the meaning of popular words like “labour”, “work”, “money”, including the change in the relations between mankind and economy. So if we say “work”, it’s probably not the same thing that used to be meant by our grands. I think we can now read in a new way that old pamphlet written by K. Malevic about the concepts of “laziness”, truth and liberty.


I’ve chosen a young, beardless Karl Marx as the same subject for these paintings. The first three portraits I made are overlapped, one over the other, deleting the previous ones. Sometimes I mount them in exhibitions as if they were sculptures. I like the forces of invisibility, especially in painting.
