The work captures an afterimage on my retina, which leaves a frame from the selected film. Afterimage is a phenomenon of visual perception, which consists in the fact that after prolonged visual fixation on an image, the eye continues to see the trace of the image, even if the object has already disappeared from view. The film I chose had to meet three criteria: to be on my list of favorite movies; I have an intimate story connected with this film; reflects my position as an artist. So I use my eye as a camera lens, translating the resulting image into a medium of painting, because only painting makes it possible to capture these involuntary spots forever.
