Sofia is rusty knife two and she answers Yes. I was a quite sickly child and although this looked as a curse at first, since I wasn’t able to play as other children did, but had to be careful, it turned to be a blessing cause I learned from a very young age to be responsible. Over the years I learned how to eat, exercise and relax in a way that improves my quality of life and develops my spirit.. ABOUT THE COLLECTION " Rusty Knives" There are some gifts, which appear as such from the beginning. Somebody has beauty, another has talent in languages, math, arts, etc. It's obvious that this kind of qualities are gifts for a person helping one to have better, full life. But also there are those named mishaps, suffering, disasters. Painful conditions. If such conditions are met at childhood, pain can last for years, even for ever. These old wounds are rusty knifes. 'Rusty' for old and 'knife' for wound. One' s knife image has an intense, hard impact to the viewer but here, through art, a transubstantiation of this “knifal” energy is being attempted. Perhaps fear and detestation related to the knife, can be transformed to a belief that these knifes are bringing presents as well. Maybe a little bit hidden ones, but still, valuable. Eight knifes are presented into a mixed media technique that combines painting, sewing, and ready or recycled objects. The whole compositions are posed into diy framing constructions. Each art work is accompanied by a text making it specific and unique, for each knife, both the disaster and the gift. It's about the answers of 8 people to same question.

For her creating art is a constant experiment on how composing shapes, colors, textures, techniques, or even objects with ready concepts on them, is creating certain visual but also spiritual results. Further more creating art for her is a self healing process, a reconnection with inner world and ,at worst times, a safe place to be.
