Peculiarity of the art of creating portraits lies in a dialogue between the artist deprived of creation privacy and a model who desires to see himself in the work of the painter. Subjective self-image worn by each of us stands in contradiction with the painters reflection, becoming a foundation of a conflict that is at the center of this art. Two distant images of the same person form a space between each other, in which the artist must respectfully refer to his model and to his own art.
