What is life? How does time pass? Why do some memories linger in our minds while others simply wither away? These eternally complicated questions tend to have the simplest of answers, or so I believe.
In my exhibition "Moments..." , I attempt to share a chronicle of moments and scenes that give meaning to our ordinary day to day lives. These moments are so meaningful that they provide us with a true sense of humanity, and instill a static nature in time. They transform time into a thread of scenes that we keep alive in our minds and hearts.
I try to bring these moments to life by combining painting with compound installations with specific lighting, in order to intensify the emotional aspect embedded in every instance.
Every frame ranges from grief to happiness, from fear to comfort, as well as from despair to hope…but in spite of the extreme contrast, they all harmoniously co-exist within the deepest trenches of our human psyche.
As life goes on, we tend to share these points in time with others, and it is then that the very same moment could be perceived differently by the various people experiencing it. So a first attempt of riding a bike strikes fear in the child, but gives pride to the father...A group of girls’ first trip alone could mean exploration for one, yet escape to another.
This is how the threads of our memories flow: quick, contradicting, interw oven and rich... because our lives happen to just pass in the simple form of MOMENTS...
