About The Artwork

A stylite was an ascetic who lived on top of pillars as a form of spiritual devotion and discipline. They believed that mortifying their body contributed to their soul's salvation.

This photograph shows a woman who is sitting on the top of a pillar, her head obscured by smoke. The act of removing her clothing suggests the unveiling of her true self, freeing herself from social norms, and expectations, to reveal her true identity. The woman's solitary posture and the height of the column emphasize her independence, reinforcing the idea that this is a journey of self-discovery and liberation.

For printing we use pigmented inks and museum quality archival paper (giclée printing technique) - this means that the light resistance of the colors is more than 100 years, in accordance with Wilhelm Imaging Research.

Limited Edition Giclée Print. Paper: Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta, printed with 5cm white border. Signed on the front, signed Certificate of Authenticity is included.

You will receive the print rolled in a tube, mounting and/or framing is required.

Peter Zelei is a Hungarian visual artist who specializes in portrait, conceptual imagery, landscapes and also photo manipulations. From his use of colour and surreality, he creates a reality found only in his imagination, but with an emotion that is undeniably human. He explores the divide between darkness and light, unafraid to explore themes that others may find uncomfortable. His work evokes a connection from the viewer, a feeling of oneness of the human experience and a mystery that will leave you wondering how the story will unfold. He exposes the rawness, surreality, mysticism and yet also poetry of his surroundings. His photographs and photo manipulations are created within an immense subtleness and ease. They take the observer on a journey into the most intimate realms of the human experience. Tina Lorien (Gallerie Lorien)
