“After sin”

The subject of sin is interesting and relevant for a contemporary creator, the possible reason for this being the fact that humans cannot avoid sin, just as sin cannot exist without humans. This stimulates interest in how modern man understands sin, what kind of feelings it provokes, and how this subject is developed in art. With this collection I do not portray sin or its types, but rather choose to convey feelings it invokes. Collection “After sin” consists of nine brooches: smearing, anger, pain, despair, sadness, anxiety, loneliness, reconciliation, forgiveness. Feelings and emotions mark the body, cling to it and, though uncomfortable, are worn nevertheless.
