Taming painting series, 2019 Ever since I remember, the snake was the most terrifying creature that exists for me. I was afraid of a harmless blindworm, but also an anaconda I will probably never meet. My phobia was brought up in a Catholic spirit, where the snake was turned into me as a tempter, manipulator, incarnation of Satan, meaning nothing good. I have been fighting my phobia for some time, and I am trying to understand its sources. The Taming painting series is part of this process.
