Work made with digital collage technique. The image of the protagonist of the work is reproduced four times – distant and blurred. Her silhouette is slightly tilted, as is her profile. Her face is neither sad nor happy, it looks like a stone statue. Her heart is pierced by an arrow, wounded.
The work tells the story of a broken heart and the pain that passes with time. This is evidenced by the figures moving away, symbolising the passage of time. The colour red can also be seen – a symbol of pain, injury. The inscription at the top of the work reads “It will pass too”, meaning that this is not the first disappointment, break-up or injury in the protagonist’s life. It also offers hope, suggesting that this pain will go away, just like any other pain the character has experienced. For this to happen, the passage of time, visible in the work in the form of the figures moving away, is important.
