The “Know my name” series presented for the Culture Night 2022 is a collection of 2d mixed media collages that illustrate the collective beauty and strength of women. Through the use of rich, vibrant colours and flowers as a symbol of unity, togetherness, love and hope. Ethereal and light saturated images are a reminder of one poet’s words, “both the woman and the flower have their days, they are not years old” (Jan Sztaudynger), These pieces are a tribute to women and came directly from the viewpoint that every woman, as a flower whispers “beauty” to the world, and the passing of time is not gonna change it.
