Artist statement – FREEDOM.5PM
I came across these two girls playing in the sand on one Friday afternoon while I was wandering down the beach in Oman. There was something touchingly innocent and peaceful in the scene, as the girls seemed to be continuously blessed by the sea each time the wave reached their playground. “Infinite freedom” was the first thing that came to my mind at that moment, and this very image returned to me when I started to think about my artistic response to “Passion for Freedom” theme.
I decided to use a mix of two techniques—painting and mosaics to emphasize the contrast between aerial transparency of the painted image and almost brutal, material effect of the stone surface. The rocky landscape of the mosaic structure creates the sense of depth that makes the view of the girls distanced both physically and psychologically. Through the gap in the wall laced with the wire you can only catch the sight of the world behind it. Or maybe you can even break through? Who is the prisoner here, you – or them? Or maybe there’s no prison at all?
