"We wanted to rebuild our lives, that was all. In order to rebuild one’s life one has to be strong and an optimist. So we are very optimistic. Our optimism is admirable. We lost our home, which means the familiarity of daily life. We lost our occupation, which means the confidence that we are of some use in this world. We lost our language, which means the naturalness of reactions, the simplicity of gestures, the unaffected expression of feelings. We left our relatives and our best friends and that means the rupture of our private lives. … … This optimism is the vain attempt to keep head above water."(Hannah Arendt)
About the artist
"In my work I am always looking for beauty and poetry even if some subjects I deal with are full of pain. I have always focused on the observation and search for visual expressions in themes that are in some way related or connected to movement and transformation. I focus on emotions and feelings, on the duality of things and the search for balance. A balance that comes and goes…and yet is never permanent."
