What occupied my mind at the time of the creation of this collection was the issue of forced migration. Migration of refugees who no longer have any hope of a normal life in their homeland, a land that has become like an uninhabitable black hole. So in order to to find a beginning again, they give up all they have made, and this abandonment comes with a lot of suffering.
These dark thoughts of mine have manifested themselves in a colorful world. The presence of colors is due to the profound effect that Iranian painting has had on my subconscious mind. Paintings that in their most violent and sad scenes are still full of tenderness, color and many details. And now my world, with all its colorfulness, remains sadly silent and frozen.
