||The project of
Memory and our use of it is centered about the concept of
remembrance and loss, hope and memory. All human elements so
essential for understanding our situation and orientation in
our world. Both the existing part and what is lost in
The painting to the left
was created in 1977, when I was intrigued by the concept of
generations and the passing of destinies and fate from one
generation to another. The young man in the red suit is
standing before the older generation maybe as an Isaac or
maybe just as son of man. Of course there are many more
layers of understanding and experience in the painting, but
you have to let your mind wander into the picture or use it
as a window to another world to encode these messages.
In the coming months the
next parts of the project will be presented here.
This project is in
connection with my participation in The Memoir Project,
Brooklyn Art Library, New York, but was planned before the
invitation from USA, and it follows its own necessity
untouched by the american project.
