Hidden Art. At first glance, the theme I have chosen is perhaps somewhat paradoxical. On the one hand, you have art, which is often not disguised. Art is often tall and big, long and bright. The hidden aspect, then, is found in those very things that you do not see at first. Things that only come to light after repeated viewing. The theme of this collection revolves primarily around this dichotomy that comes together as one in its entirety. Striking yet hidden. A special focus is placed on architecture of cathedrals. Particularly, the rose window in stained glass in Notre Dame in Strassbourg.
