“My Journey”

Life is too serious in order to take it seriously. Describing my feelings and emotions through this journey I choose mermaid which is a mystic symbol. It can be real since part of it relates to a human figure but also it is considered a myth, something that does not really exist.

My work can be described as Symbolism; some realistic forms have combined with symbolic shapes to tell a story. I am fantasizing on this hardship journey and try to create my imagination into a landscape of beauty. Ocean, flowers and fish are the main motives, signifying life and happiness but promising no eternity.

The purpose of this collection is to serve the ones whom are facing difficulties to learn the fact that we can only overcome our problems by strong faith in our spirits leading us to a new world of creation and leave a memory for the next generation.

I like to dedicate my collection to my dear and precious son who gave me so much joy and inspiration in this journey.

 

The following quotations have inspired my collection:

Goya

      “Art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can only be explored by those willing to take the risks.”

Renoir

       “An intellectual is a man who says a simple thing in a difficult way; an artist is a man who says a difficult thing in a simple way.”

Rubens

      “ What I am seeking is not the real and not the unreal but rather the unconscious, the mystery of the instinctive in the human race.”

Frida Kahlo

      “ Now I live on a planet of pain, transparent like ice. It is as if I’d understood everything all at once in a matter of seconds. My friends I know have slowly become women. I grew old in a few seconds, and now everything is bland and flat.”
