THE EXHIBITION CONCEPT
Seeds are the sense of metaphysics, formed calmly in unknown world in the ground to be produced later in different structures, giving us vivid models with mixed feelings. We happily live with these incredible varieties of emotions if carried within them benign thinking and generous gift that provide humankind with goodness, love and hope; otherwise, we condemn them if characterized by satanic thoughts or corruption.
This artistic experience is portraying the world of these formed seeds as people I have encountered in my entire life or in my dreams. I chose to paint some of their laughter, dialogue, intrigues, conflict, violence, kindness, glory and refraction as to present it to the recipient, to see them in accordance with their values, principles, beliefs and duality of good and evil within them.
