As it is known from history an "ideal beauty" is an entity, that is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture. In my series “Beautiful and Ugly” I am researching the beauty as a phenomenon in aesthetics and sociology in our culture. The portraits are representing my experience with perception of individual face through the process of painting. The flowing watercolor technic, which I use for painting the faces allow me to create an image, that consists the visible and invisible of an individual, which can be transfered to the community in general. The other parts of paintings are painted in acrylic technic, mainly in illustrative way, as a reflection of the surface and two-dimensionality of the occurrence.
