These are photographs of human hands in old paintings. I have copied the hands using a mirror technique. In the center of the image is formed a new, imaginary person to whom the hands belong.

The beauty of the hands is fascinating to me, revealing another side of the I, me, of selfishness and greed. They remind me also of the artist's historical role as a seeker and presenter of beauty. Hands tell a story of their own, and can reveal the social status of their owners.

These hands are not made to work, rather, they have gathered the fruits of work. They are also the hands of today, vain, greedy and selfish.
