In Relationship with Office Work' Series, '2019-'2020

How much time do we spend in the office? 8 hours, lunch and 2 hours on the road. 11 hours a day. 55 hours a week. 2970 hours a year, 50% of all life and 70% of wakefulness.
70% Just imagine. More than with family. More than with friends. More than with your loved one. Not surprisingly, we are in a relationship with office work.

What is the phenomenon of office life? Why do we think we are spending our lives on the right things? Why do we put on suits, communicate with office equipment and create something illusory in huge buildings of glass and metal? What makes us do this every day? Does that make sense? And, if so, is it worth our life?

The Concept. What does freedom mean? What the difference between true real freedom and pseudo freedom? Are there clear borders between these types?

Where to place. This painting will ideally suit the office building interior, office cabinet, home office or studio. It will be also brilliant for the office hall, reception or conference room, but not only. If you would like to place this painting in a living room or bedroom it will be also suitable.

'Guilty Lamp', 2020

#inrelationshipwithoffice

The Concept. The idea of this painting appeared to me when I understand, that during the whole working day there was no one with me besides the pile of papers and this small old black table lamp in my office room.

Probably, every office person has a lamp like this. You are spending with lamp weeks and months and it is becoming one of your close friends. It seems like a relationship with the office, isn't it?

'Pencils', 2019
Irena Tone, 70*100 cm (39,4*27,6 in), Acrylic, Cotton Canvas
#inrelationshipwithoffice

The Concept. We can use a pencil when the hairpin is not at hand. 1 or 2 pencils - this is OK. But when there are 8 of them, it really hurts. And uncomfortable. And strange. Sometimes too many incisive cases for one person.

Award.
