Sacred is often defined as a conjunction of worship and fear, it created value by its inaccessibility. It appears out of touch, distant and ethereal, carrying the taboo of isolated and unknown. And unknown can be easily misunderstood. Enlightenment aims to challenge the paradigm of visual representation connected with faith. It represents my vision of purity and sanctitude deprived of accustomed dogma and fear of openness. Without intention to scandalize I created a fictitious story of 3 sisters bond by belief, sharing life in companionship, and enjoying innocent pleasures of existence.
Individual scenes represent actions forbidden to women belonging to nun-hood by religious orders as well as public opinion. These are mostly actions related to inter-human relations, joy, and freedom of mind, actions which are by no means evil or opposed to someone's devotion in its real sense. Enlightenment is a reform of thinking and values, questioning the meaning of forbidden fruit. Life is not a sin.
