"Rhino"

Expressiveness of the image is contained in the contrast. Rhino is an animal associated with manhood, pressure, and stubbornness. But the sculptural form gives us another point a view: the elegance of the contours, where a wave prevails over straight line, perceived as an aspect of femininity and hidden eroticism. Internal contradiction between signified and signifier is projected on the eternal concept of the unity of opposites revealing in a distinctive author's manner: through the combination of materiality and emptiness, laconism of surface and ornateness of outlines.
