About this artwork
This work is about the complexity of the first steps. Every person learns something, sets goals and moves forward in life. Every new endeavor requires effort, patience, diligence. The first steps in any endeavor are the most difficult. They are so heavy and even painful, as if you are walking on a long road in shoes made of concrete filled with broken glass. But the more experience a person gains in a new endeavor, the easier it becomes on the way to the goal.
Emigration multiplies this condition several times. In emigration a person loses everything old (language, culture, native faces, habitual mentality, known rules of behavior and laws, way of life and much more) and gets instead of all this everything new. In such moments, one has to master several skills at once in order to achieve several goals. Each simple everyday action (riding the bus, buying groceries, going to the doctor, etc.) at first turns out to be a difficult task, which, like a small piece of glass, digs into the foot, leaves a mark and makes the path more difficult.

This work is one of the "Emigration and Adaptation" series. You can see other works from this series in my portfolio and store.
