Chain miseries

‏No wind blows backwards,
‏backwards is the weariness of the history.
‏-Sohrab Sepehri

‏History is a chain of different incidents and events, some apparent and some got covered by the dust of time. Our history is full of miseries happened one after the other and yet dust of forgetfullness is an additional sorrow upon them.
‏There was a tortuous path ahead. On one hand I didn't want to have a journalistic point of view and on the other hand, tried to be faithful to the rules of painting. I wished it would be the picture seen not the text. I have lived with these pictures and they have grown up and formed with me, that was a long and hard process and of course delightful.
‏Present collection, is the outcome of my efforts in order to conjoin my personal emotions of contemporary history by means of the medium of painting.
‏Events that are far away and sometimes unknown and at the same time influential in our nowaday ambient.
