The statue comes from the Self-Portrait Transformation cycle. It is a profile line of my face which I am not afraid to deform, rotate and thus create a new view of my appearance. The name of the sculpture is Two because every man in the world tries to find himself and most often finds himself and can communicate with himself when seeing own appearance in the mirror. That is why I create mirror images of myself: to find myself through art and make it possible for others to go through this journey, to think and find themselves in this fast-paced time.
