Cultural layer is the layering of soil at the site of a human settlement, preserving the material traces of his activities.
In the same way, our unique life experience is layered upon previous sensations, as if forming successive layers.
A person’s character is built on a platform similar to a sponge or peat bog: any impressions that get there remain there forever.
This work captures and pays tribute to a particular era in my life, when the opportunity and desire to spend time with friends in travel and bars met. The setting depicted in the picture is a collective visual archetype of that period of my life. This layer of life has ended, but together with all the other layers, it forms the basis that forms my personality.
