Talking walls evoke history, human stories, anguish, and
splendour. A touch of creation, destruction,
rebirth and wonder.
Every step we make, history recalls.
Chronicles were born behind these talking walls…
It woke my senses to develop an idea that, still, standing walls or ruins can absorb the essence of a place, people and events over time that could be retold, and we are able to uncover a trail of stories just by observing the state of the walls.
Recognising that there is also an incredible side to the recovery of places, I was convinced that at every generation there remains a layer of beauty that is embedded onto every culture over time and can be revealed if one simply scratches the surface and observe closely. Each of these paintings is unique in my effort to portray an abstraction to depict the stories of the past. I hope you will find some connections to them as much as they did to me.
