The Prague Interview (2-3 June, 2003) - Part 7

Have you always had to deal with people treating your differently because of the way you look? And how have people reacted when they discovered there's actually more to you than just what people see?

It's not about me... it's about those people who are only interested in whether you're beautiful. There are other people who care more about what's in your mind. But the first time you meet someone it's important how you look. After that, other things matter more. And for a woman -- for me -- "beautiful" and "attractive" have different meanings. To be an attractive woman you don't have to be beautiful looking. I know a lot of beautiful girls who could interest people for only five minutes. After that, they have nothing to say, nothing to talk about.

For example, if you imagine Milla Jovovich and Naomi Campbell... both are famous, both are very beautiful. Naomi is close to perfect. She has a beautiful body and a beautiful face, but that's all I see on Naomi. When I look at a picture of Milla, I see a person, not only a model. I see some energy around her. I feel her soul. It's not only vision; it's the kind of emotion I'd like to give to people in my work too.

 

Are you still painting? Can you describe your work?

Yes, a week ago I finished some work. For me, modeling is a first step toward some art career. I really like the job of photographer... it's creative... it's interesting. I would like to try something in photography, but altering the picture... to take a real picture and paint onto it. Something like this is really beautiful, when you take a real photograph and make it into a painting or a drawing. I've never done this exactly, but sometimes I see a picture and draw something based on that. But I'd really like to try drawing directly onto a large print of a photo.

 

So what would you call your style of painting?

I have no real style. I do a lot of different things. When I draw, I like contrasts -- dark and light colors. I never know what I'm going to paint. I take paper and pen, and I look at it for an hour or so... until I get an idea. But when I finish the work, it's usually a different idea from the one I started with. [Smiles]

 

Is there anything you'd like to say to all the people who've been looking in on your web site?

[Laughs] ... No idea... [Pauses] I would like to ask people to stop looking for an ideal, for perfection around them, and begin to look inside themselves. Because how much you like yourself is how much people will like you.

Of course, I want people looking at my pictures, but I'm not trying to make anyone think I'm perfect.
