In childhood, I used to ask myself, “Who am I?” Swiftly and in a prolonged way, without pauses, repeating this question in my thoughts, I realized my “Self” beyond the boundaries of body and mind, my authenticity as a part of the Universe. The feeling of awareness and immersion into the depths of myself was unforgettable, but unfortunately, it lasted just a moment. Being an adult, I have lost this ability; however, the memories of that feeling have inspired me to create The World of the Subconscious series. It is about self-recognition through an allegorical image of the Tree as a symbol of life.
