"Extinct Series" is a collection of semi-abstract characters. They are "portraits" of antique armchairs, which exist only in my imagination. Each of them is "colored" into certain emotion. The first one I painted refused to come to life till I laid the gold leaf application on its backing, reminiscent of vertebrae... That intuitive move transformed the object of an old chair into a species of extinction. The reference that gave the name to the first painting and to the series.
