Squareroot5 wear project 2020I often admire the perfection of Nature, the images that surround us everywhere: an elaborate curve left on the sand by a sea wave for a few seconds, the tree branches hugging each other with cautious curiosity, the shape of a rock, the morning breeze leaving its inscriptions on the surface of the water… These images speak of the perfect harmony, rhythm, individuality and complete uniqueness. I also believe that these are the messages from Nature to us, created to teach us to be strong, live in the moment and appreciate the boundless beauty of our world.
When I look at a stone, I see eternity. When I look at an exquisite flower, I think of fragility and the fleeting nature of beauty. These moments allow me to appreciate the universe and the life on our wonderful planet even more. I stop and contemplate how secondary everything created by us humans is; we only interpret and reshape what has already been created by Nature before us.
My work is borne by these moments of humble appreciation of the beauty of Nature. I constantly learn the language of rhythm, the words inscribed by the shadows of light, the sounds of color and the harmony of movement. Without the need to give the objects their names, we all try to find our own interpretations, our expression of gratitude and the voice which can be heard through art. My voice is Project Squareroot5 ©.
This project took a long time to gain clarity as a concept. I spent years traveling, meeting with interesting people, hearing their stories and gathering experiences. I lived in Russia, Japan, Israel, and Germany. Each step brought me closer to realizing the potential of the ideas I had in mind all along and the constant evolution of my perceptions of the world with its different cultures and peoples made me more convinced that this was only the beginning.
When I leave the city and find myself getting closer to Nature, I realize how rational and predictable our lives are in the cities… too many rules, restrictions, boundaries. Too remote from the laws and freedom of Nature and, of course, it can often feel cold, limited and grey. I see so many beautiful women in the cities too. And since I find the female form the most fascinating thing in the world I naturally chose women as an object for my art.
I would very much like to give the beautiful women a gift of color and brighten up their day! I want them to walk down the street and the city change its colors everywhere they go! I want them to transform the ordinary into extraordinary and step out of the crowd. I want them to remind everyone that beauty is within us and sometimes all it takes to wake up is a flash of color on a grey day.
One of the main components of Project Squareroot5 © is its people. I get so much joy and inspiration from our working together, from bouncing the ideas around the table and the endless energy of the creative minds. This is the fuel which allows me to keep going and making the world a brighter place.
