Hieronymus Bosch`s Eye

Obsessed with delicacy and lightness of Paper and its transformation ability to deferent shapes and forms, I create surrealistic, dream worlds with symbolic representations and emotional intensity. Sometimes the fragile paper dioramas are secured under a glass. Try to freeze a moment from the newborn dreamy world and keep it to eternity! Like here by “Hieronymus Bosch`s Eye”, a Homage to Bosch`s “Garden of Earthly Delights”, it is a representative symbolic moment of Lust, Fertility, and lightness of human existence. A dark violet cut out paper at the background transformed in a vulva and dominates the scene like a great goddess of Love! Two broken eggs as a powerful symbol of fertility creating the flowers and the fruit of desire, the one that an etheric blue woman carries as a shamanic, mystical creature. A yellow butterfly, the lightness of existence! And all happens under the surrealistic and creative Eye of Hieronymus Bosch!
