"Am I Beautiful to You?" explores the space of drawings through the decorative cosmetics medium. As a daily female beauty ritual, makeup has become an integral part of almost every woman's life. By using makeup, with a series of procedures of camouflaging "defects", women can create desired identities and prospects. It leaves a mark on the skin - color, line, feeling - that can be changed on a daily basis. Drawings "Am I Beautiful to You?" point to precisely these traces: everyday notes on paper, which in addition to the visual aspect in the form of associative abstractions carry a personal poetics related to beauty, women's ideals, constructions and fantasies.
