Artist statment:
"Transformations in cultural frameworks and the annexation by overwhelming waves of extreme shifts of mind, often leads to the temptation to abandon the challenges of sophistication and seek the warm cradle of traditions. I often use this concept as a canvas to illustrate the vicissitudes of existence over time, emphasizing the thin line between primitive and supreme - That, as an attempt to challenge the infinite conflicts between creeds and cultures and distinguish the essence of separate entities."
