“all the hearts that beat in the darkness…”
Joseph Conrad

Long before the appearance of film and digital media, paintings and drawings were principal mediators of the Age of Discovery and Colonialism. The created images were not showing the problematics, but were documenting in details the development of European art and lifestyle in the New World. Inspired by reflections from the past and taking particular works as a starting point, I thought about “Colonial Escape” through the prism of modernity. Mixing and overlapping each other, the graphic elements create an original combination, which structure is flexible, but doesn’t destroy the integrity of the whole series.
