TITLE: Introversion


This artwork was inspired by one of German artist Käthe Kollwitz’s photographs. The intention consisted in choosing a specific detail and interpreting it from a technical and conceptual point of view. I tried to express the depression she suffered from due to the tragic events from the first world war, by painting only her eyes on a monochromatic background, so that the viewer could focus better on this facial detail.Violet colour is the symbol of introvertion, of self-knowledge and of talking to oneself, to one’s deepest feelings.
