Art Monaco 2014
Art Monaco was a really enjoyable experience. Mona Youssef Gallery had a great bunch of 32 International Artists exhibiting on her stand. I made this VIDEO of the time we spent there.
I had two paintings exhibited on the stand. This is me talking about my works to Eddy Ratti and Geovana Clea of Emotions Of The World.
UNCERTAIN FUTURE (2009)
When I painted this work I was uncertain about the direction of my own life, but it has a much wider meaning. I am asking a question about what the future holds for all of humanity.
The large unformed face emerging out of the dense fluid texture represents uncertainty about how the future of humanity may unfold from the chaos of present day events.
BLACK HOLE IN OUR MIND (2013)
The carved face in profile represents human energy and creative action in the world. This bright image is contrasted with a darker space at the back symbolising a deep black hole in the human mind. It is a metaphor to express the idea that human energy is consumed by catastrophic events, unresolved problems and dysfunctional relationships. These issues act like a black hole in space; their gravitational field draws the energy of individuals, families, communities and nations. This energy disappears forever and cannot be used in a positive way in the world.
It was a very well attended event and many people stopped on the stand to discuss the works.
Grimaldi Forum was a great venue and Monaco is very compact and easy to get around.
