This sculpture is like my mirror. This is my self-portrait created from various materials, fabric, plastic, and something else. She is part of my global project. I portrayed myself in the best way, the best version of me. Lady in a hat with a rose and a veil. Mysteriousness and mystery.

Its a one of the sculptures in “Hyperrealistic Motanka” project. Its project of large installations with many sculptures.
I’m also interested and inspired by the history of Ukraine, its past, customs and traditions. Therefore, a series of installations, “Hyperrealistic Motanka”, will be presented at the exhibition. Its “ Hyperrealistic Motanka” project, a traditional doll from ancient times. Motanka is a traditional doll that protects both the house and the child with its positive energy. I like to study and delve into history. Inspired by this part of the history of my country, Ukraine, I got the idea to create a full-length Motanka sculpture. Let it be even more powerful energetically than small and more noticeable. This project is also Eco friendly. These dolls-sculptures made from scrap materials that have become unnecessary at home and these are different clothes, plastic, polyethylene, cardboard, etc. It is an ecological project for which, to create it, I bought the only adhesive tape in the store, I found everything else at home and in an art studio, which was recycled to cleanse our planet of pollution.
This work carries a positive paired energy, Motanka sculptures are lovers—love, peace and goodness. Love will save the world! Let everyone enjoy this wonderful feeling.
