In this collage as in many other compositions by A. Zakarauskas we see the same male figure, whose posture and clothes betray that it is an image of the painter himself. These visual clones of Zakarauskas are multiplied, deformed, decomposed into separate parts, arranged rhythmically, interlaced and become elements, patches and strokes of not only the narrative of the work, but also its visual structure. By inserting his image into the structure of the artworks, the painter almost identifies himself with it. Thus, self-portraits are used for the exploration and conceptualisation of painting; through them Zakarauskas explores the relations between artwork and the artist.
