MY SUMMER FRIEND
Material: Canvas, paper, acrylic paint, oil pastel
Size: 70 x 100 cm
A girl in a white dress, plays outside with her yellow ball on an early sunny Sunday morning. The streets are still quiet and empty. She is waiting for a friend to play with. Then she discovers her shadow and sees it as her new friend, going everywhere with her.
Children inspire me. Their ability to transcend any rotten situation is amazing. Playing tag in the ruins of a bombed-out Syrian city. Playing soccer in the most miserable neighborhoods. They are always looking for the light. They save the future that our generations really messed up and don't even blame us for it. If only we could keep the child in ourselves a little more, we wouldn't be in such a mess. Art can help us find our childlike innocence again
