This exhibition is about the different facial expressions of people and some animals.
Most of these paintings came into life as the paintings/drawings evolved.
This way of painting is much more exciting for me than any painting where I plan ahead how it will look like.
Following whatever came out by a spontaneous brush strike...It can be a foot, it can be a bird or a scarf and basing upon the idea of the painting on that figure.
These paintings and drawings are figurative, naive and expressive. Sometimes showing the dark side of the person and sometimes the numb side.
