Lady B ( Beruska in Czech means ladybug ) - Lady B, let it be..
It's just the realization of a small detail;
when I was working as a floor maid in Italy, there were a few consecutive days where there was a particular room where every time i walked in, there was ladybug on the curtains that almost seemed to be waiting for me.
I was very sad and exhausted from a job hat I will never advise anyone to do as long as I have lasted a whole season.
She gave me so much joy that i drew her.
Today, making two and two, i realize that the geometry that is in front of her, I copied it from a shirt that a person dear to me at the time tore it up.
The message for me in this case was "dont't get so emotionally attached to people and their things, let them go, fly away", hence "Let it be".
We always manage to understand things but every "thing" has its own time.
Technique. pencil and pen.
This drawing was conceived in 2018, it was a trip to Spain, by train.
In Germany we were stopped, made to get off the train, searched up to the throat and then abandoned in the middle of the fields on the German border.
We managed to take a train towards Spain, they made us get off at the first German town we reached, (I obviously had a suspicious face for the Germans even though I was dressed as a water and soap girl) and we were detained in that town for 24 hours, we slept in a new, tall building similar to those in the drawing, high up where the apartments and dental offices ended and there, when we woke up, we had this idea because we were enjoying the lonely sunrise in the middle of the buildings. we never made it to Spain. we went back.
Technique: pencil and watercolr.
The inspiration for this projekt comes from a reinterpretation of the characters from Alice in Wonderland.
The inspiration died the moment the Caterplillar smoked himself, and this is why it doesn't have a body.

White Rabbit Green was born in 2013,
Liv8592 was 22 years old and had a great need to get everywhere in time, but for Liv it is always late, but she is always there.
So White Rabbit Green became part of a 5 x 2.70 m personal mural project in a vaulted arcade. I have been working on this project for the past 10 years.
Techique: colored pencils.
2019. This drawing was a direct experience of mine: A day like many other, my mother's borrowed car slipped on the wet road beacuse it was drizzling.
It - the car - flew in the air, did two somersaltus on itself, I tried to brake and straighten the steering wheel, but the moment I realized that there was nothing I could do I just stopped trying.
The only thing that I can say is that in that moment i felt a presence, an energy that was not mine. Call it God if that's how you wanna call it. The car landed in the only spot of wet sand, so the flight was amortized. It was totally destroyed.
The first thing I saw were the perfectly folded glasses that my dad gave me just before he died and the second a red wooden heart that my mother used to carry with her when she was sick. Shi is fine now and that makes me very happy. I ran out of the car looking for help and then came back home, to her.
As soon as I arrived I went for a walk around the pond behind our house and there I lived this beautiful moment, the sun was setting and the moon was rising and I was exactly in the middle of this future, savoring the moments.
Technique: acrylic on wood.
This was a commission for a graduation gift in 2016, I think.
It represents our five senses; sight - touch - hearing - smell - taste. Underlying you can see the human brain.
All this because during the idealization of the project I reailzed that desires and dreams are Us, they are governed by us and created by us, therefore by our senses. It took me 3 months to design it and the final result speaks for itself.
With this work I also experienced a great personal mistake: before starting to work on the project I asked for reward of only 50 euros. At the conclusion of the work, I realized that it has a much greater economic value, later on. I kept my word and then I started learning how to value my creations.
" KLIK KAZO ( on the drawing ) SO SEE ALL SIDES".
Technique: pencil and pen combinated with two different drawing techniques.
2016, interesting experience, I illustreated four books for a couple, respectively Danilo and Isotta Bettini.
This path gave me a lot because even if my friends of the time criticized me that my social life were only elderly people, what I was living on the other side was
1 - learn the dialect of the places where I grew up since all the books are written in this language.
2- each illustrated story is a real story that is part of their life memories and it was great to immerse myself and learn something from the authenticity of the past.
3- learn to draw with more techniques because it was required of me.
If you enter the gallery or " KLIK KAZO AND SEE EVERYTHING" you will notice how the illustrations, with my photographs have been updated over the years,
to give it more life.
I made this in 2012. I was completely under the school exams of the Fortunato Depero Art Institute
and I could not study, so every evening instead of studying, I painted. This is how my version of " V 4 Vendetta" was born.
I remember that I was almost obsessed with finishing it because I was so immersed in his gaze, in those icy eyes where he finds himself.
Later, almost ten years later I had it printed on fabric and I created a coat by hand, sewing the print on the back. I wear it every day.
If you open the dictionary with me, you will notice the equivalent to the word 'archetype', synonyms such as: original model or exemplar.
In my experience, I made this drawing at a time when my "animus" was struggling with the archetypes handed down to me by my parents, to them by their parents, by their parents' parents...
It was a good job to discard and weaken the archetypes that I did not like and that I considered unhealthy for my personality, for example mental dynamics and habits. Keeping and strengthening the pleasant and healthy ones. Thus creating a mind that is flexible to change.
Speaking in archetypes, my animal in activity is the lion, in agressivity it is the wolf, which I discover today, eight years after I made the drawing and which makes me understand a lot about my need in the past for a uninon of the "animus" (Jung).
We note that the term "ARCHETIPE", we know it used in; Analytical psychology - in Jungian thought: an image present in the collective unconscious,
In Philology - the unpreserved manuscript from which all known codes derive, we also learn about it in mythology, literature, linguistics and finally in marketing..
Not all archetypes are right and not all are wrong.
We must be able to 'filter' reality well, following our heart.
Technique: coloured pencils and pen.
Honestly, I don't remember when I made this drawing.
In a way I have created a shield against toxicity in front of the passion flower as if I wanted to protect nature from the pollution we are causing to this beautiful earth, as if I wanted to safeguard our Nature; biologically speaking that which surrounds us.
Maybe it's because it's already poisonous in good quantities and we don't have the right to increase the doses, but....
Like a concrete number of my drawings, I remember that it was a time of pain and someone was trying to manipulate my mind.
It may have been an instinctive form of defence in which my soul cried out: 'Live beautiful creature, I will not let you be manipulated, I am your essence and you must shine'.
