Existential Cemetery, 1992

Cycle of 3 drawings on paper
pencil, tempera and watercolor, collage
200 x 140 cm each

At the end of the tumultuous year of 1992 in the life of the author – full of professional success and personal drama, the artist created 3 drawings of coffins:

a/ a coffin for the Ego – shaped like the English letter “I” with head separated from the body;

b/ a coffin for Two People who die in their love; and

c/ a coffin for Jesus – as a symbolic gesture of liberating himself from the 3 main existential items for each human being – the self, the other and the transcendental.
