For more than a year, we have been trying to adapt to a new normal life, and it’s unclear if we are saying farewell to an era that we thought was going to last forever. For we have faced – and still facing – a strange complex situation that is pushing us to a search for a safe place to lean on, inside of our beliefs and our imagination, where past, present and future collides in a hazy mysterious space.
And I tended in my current exhibition’s artworks to search for a meaning through meditation and reflecting to reevaluate and reimagine my inside world. So my paintings started to listen to the whispers of the past and receive the spark of an unknown future.
