In my artwork, I delve into the phenomenon of childhood and its influence on each of us. Most of my artworks are inspired by observations of my own children. This time was no exception – I couldn't help but notice how children adore boxes: they turn them into houses, playing in their own imaginative worlds. As adults, we may no longer fit into a physical box, but everyone has their own mental space. Every grown-up, whether consciously or not, constructs their own "box" where the rules and environment are shaped by events, decisions, and choices made in their distant childhood.
"I'm in my little house!" we used to shout if the game became tiresome or when it seemed there was no escaping the pursuer. How wonderful it would be to have such an "option" in adult life! However, here, different rules apply. Yet, that phrase lives within us, serving as a hope from our inner child that it might come in handy someday, helping us escape from life's troubles.
