The series "Maria's Dressing" consists of 6 pictures in the format 60 x 80 cm,
each representing old master Madonnas without the baby Jesus.
A woman is regularly reminded that she has the potential to conceive and give birth to a child. Each month, the female body responds to the fact of whether the event has occurred or not.
Inevitably, she will have to repeatedly ask the question of motherhood and update the answer in each life situation.
What is fulfillment? What is the meaning of existence?
The most powerful picture of the mother is Maria with the child.
Who would be Maria without the child?
The look without a child falls on their covering / clothing.
Her look, her gestures go nowhere.
Their appearance is deformed by the blank space.
It remains the devoted attention to the unknown.
