CM: Senty Haniadaki's My Little Winged Horse comes from a group of works, whose subject is inspired from the world of children. The artistic interest of Haniadaki for children stems from her effort to recuperate the marginalization of naïve art, and the need for art to refocus on childlike innocence. Taking fairy tale as her subject Haniadaki considers both children and adults to be equal recipients of her work. Through such subjects Haniadaki helps children to become acquainted with engraving. The starting point for any of Haniadaki's engraving is composition - with an aim to achieve harmony and balance in the tonalities of white and black. In the present work she has put the city of people in the lower zone of the picture, and above it she placed the winged horse with the sun behind it as counterpoint. Haniadaki is obviously interested in a surrealistic perception of things that is not subject to conventional rules of perspective. Such an archetypal picture of the city resulted, as perceived by children. Haniadaki presents things through codes of communication, not simplistically but rather simplified.
