Painting with metaphor
Contemporary abstract figurative art
Often in and through Art we create a parallel reality, that is not the true one, yet we participate in it with our feelings, thoughts and desires, and that makes it even more meaningful, more real than the actual reality. In a painting, for example, we have the freedom to build, destroy, we can make the sky red, the grass blue, we can turn a car into a dog, or we can make a man have three legs, we can disfigure a face and yet we can call it beautiful... we can change things... we have the freedom to express ourselves and be ourselves. We can be a director, a designer, a player all at the same time.
