The sculpture 'Solitude' captures the artist's emotions surrounding the experience of solitude and loneliness.

Solitude is an intricate and multifaceted state that individuals can find themselves in. It holds a duality, wherein its effects can be both positive and negative, depending on the circumstances. On one hand, solitude can bring about a sense of freedom and deep spiritual connection. On the other hand, it can lead to social isolation and potentially contribute to mental health challenges.

The sculpture embodies this dual nature of solitude through the incorporation of wooden elements. These wooden parts symbolize thorns, signifying both protection from external dangers and the potential to inflict harm upon oneself. They serve as a powerful visual representation of the conflicting aspects of solitude.

Moreover, the figure within the sculpture is intentionally obscured, concealed beneath a hood that obscures its face. This artistic choice draws parallels to a snail taking refuge within its shell. By evoking this imagery, the artist emphasizes the natural instinct to seek shelter and retreat within oneself during periods of solitude.
