Imagination, Figurative and Abstract paintings

Several years ago, in 2002-03, my friend and I had decided to start painting together on the weekends,  since we both worked during the week. For me, it was after a few years of pause that I restarted painting.

I remember it was autumn. The Fall in Toronto is one of the most beautiful seasons of all. It makes you fall in love with the nature & Toronto all over again. The vibrant colors, around the city, gives you energy and makes you “dream-walk.”

It was at that time that I wanted to try a new medium. So I started with the oil painting but soon switched to acrylic because I didn’t have the patience of the drying time. It was also in this year that my friend suggested to use my imagination instead of drawing objects. I wanted to give it a try, so there I was, experimenting a new medium with new style! Of course I had to ruin a few canvases first, but here are some of my artworks from that time.

I named them “the moment series”:

I envision freedom as a state in which the man and the woman are utterly equal. I drew two people with no barriers, no external boundaries and challenges. The figures are deeply connected with no obstacles between them. Together they are freed from a past full of pain. They are free and in peace. They are the “Adam and Eve” of the twenty-first century, together experiencing the New Earth.
