This collection bears the name of the alphabet of the abstract, it is a metaphor. These are the elementary elements that we use to exchange and communicate and that we know or pretend to know.
Historically the letter A of the Protosinaitic alphabet originates from the letter aleph which was written in the shape of a bull. This animal represented the driving and reproductive force, the economic and fundamental energy for the prosperity of society. Since the bull is the engine of agriculture, but also the means of transport, It is the possibility, the beginning of Man, his birth, the beginning of his journey, the crossroads of his thousand possibilities …
All of the artist's works are signed Stella Polare, which means the polar star. This is a translation of her real name, Khulkar, which her grandmother gave her. Since art became the artist's guiding star, she chose this pseudonym. Stella Polare was born and raised in Uzbekistan. Currently she lives and works in France. After studying economics and management, she worked for 7 years in the pharmaceutical industry in France. The latest project in late stage pediatric oncology made a big impression on the artist. Visiting hospitals and following up on sick children with cancer has shown Stella Polare that life can be very different. The little patients, being so physically fragile, were spiritually so mature that it made him think a lot. These children are deeply aware of death and it is they who taught Stella Polare to value every moment of their life. The slightest moment of pain relief in sick children is synonymous with joy. They use everything they have: their energy, their time, to live as fully as possible. At that moment, the future artist realized that she wanted to devote herself to art. Every time Stella Polare left the hospital she felt more alive and happy than ever, as she realized that she was lucky to be alive, healthy and have the right to choose. Today, Stella Polare projects aim to develop and apply the concept of viticulture in all areas of their life. Vitaculture is an emergency of joy. Today, Stella Polare is interested in how everyone practices their own viticulture. She says that in order to feel alive, happy, some people jump from a parachute, some preserve everyday life as a couple, when they lose their partner. Each person applies this necessary urgency of joy in their own way and in their conscience.
