About my artwork
Irina Gabianis concepts:
Oriental philosophy considers our consciousness as divided into two polarities, such as masculine (+) and feminine (-), rational and emotional, good and bad, microcosm and macrocosm, finite and infinite, time and eternity. By putting these two opposites together one can reach the balance, harmony and peace within oneself, which is –in accordance with this philosophy- the aim of each human being….

…Since we all live in the physical, dualistic system, which has and is based on its own rules (rules which force us continuously to distinguish between good and bad, negative and positive etc.), every one of us, whether we like it or not, abides by these rules and is a kind of a “slave” of them. If we want to get free from this slavery, we need to step out from this “game of the dual system”.

Reaching this state and level of freedom would be possible only for “balanced persons”, who merge both (+) and (-) polarities within themselves. Such a person would not depend any more on the rules of the dual system and would be free from them.

Thanks for that Irina! I just realized we weren't friends yet so I just sent you a request... And may we all have lots of success! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll be selected for Optica Festival. Your Samaia or Triamzikammo will form part of the submission. Hugs from Spain.

hi Irina,

thank you for contacing me. I took a nother look at your photography - it is very intense and spontaneous. This is not always easy t do in photography.

Sometimes reminds me of Mario De Biasi. Have you heard of him? He has a famous poste called Ballet that has this feeling - I think you will like it.

Please stay in touch, best, L ::============)
