Artwork description:

The painting "I'm going to be a pilot" is based on a portrait of the artist when she was 5. The monochrome clothing and the heavy boots are representing the human condition, the condition which is preparing ones wings to fly. The colour tones in the painting are reduced mainly to blues and greys so they create an atmosphere which recall old times, and they present the little girl as if she looks back at us from an old photo.
Melinda's work is closely related to her own childhood, not because she wanted to be a pilot but because she wanted to break out of the place she was living as a child. Spending her childhood in a communist country has marked her in many ways, and this is one of the paintings that shows that in a remarkable way.
