object (wooden frame 112 x 112 cm, acrylic, lines)

What is silence? I try to answer this question in my work. Maybe it is just the lack of sound. In my opinion, the concept of silence does not exist, but I was brought up in the dominant world of sounds and also taught what the world of sounds is. There is a constant contradiction between what I feel and what I have been taught. 
The object resembles a conventional framed painting. In a place where you can expect canvases or boards and paints on it, there is a transparent surface, full of slits, shrouded in elusive reflections. The surface made of veins is an element of the metaphor of the border between the existing and non-existent definition.
