I am thrilled to present my next exhibition “Reconnections”, the act of re-establishing a bond of communication or emotion representing/exploring the online “connections”, which are being the main part of our social lives in these pandemic times, playing with the fact of this being my first online exhibition.
Through my paintings, I am questioning where we come from? Where are we going? Reflecting on the current situation of the world. Leaving an empty space for the “unknown” that represents the present and the future. There is also the sense of a parallel reality that questions our beliefs. My latest works are the results of those moments of reflection questioning our own humanity and how we treat each other in “difficult times”. It also explores self-isolation embracing mental health issues, insanity and even death.
I have traveled to many places interested in ancient civilizations for many years, and I like my “solid shapes” to communicate with monoliths and megaliths of ancient temples, cultures, and mysteries. The theme “Reconnections” can be seen in many of my abstract works.
The title "Reconnections" suggests an individual interpretation of the experience for each viewer. In the times we live in, many people are really rediscovering themselves, readapting to a new world and embracing new lifestyles and hobbies such as Yoga, a word derived from the Sanskrit root 'Yuj', meaning 'to join' or 'to yoke' or 'to unite, leading to the union of individual consciousness with that of the Universal Consciousness, indicating a perfect harmony between the mind and body, Man & Nature.
In a selfish world, everyone pays more attention to themselves, leaving a necessity of reconnection and creating a better world for each of us.
