"Creating stories out of mud and water" - It's a journey to uncover the core of humanity's hunger for stories while nourishing itself on memories. Through the symbolism of mud and water, reminiscent of the biblical tale of creating the first human where mud and water are employed by the maker, the paintings resonate with a yearning to preserve memories through simple narratives. Stories act as a lens, guiding us to find order in chaos and meaning in randomness. Our inherent inclination to craft narratives, even in their absence, serves as a powerful acknowledgment of how storytelling imparts purpose to our existence. Consequently, everything we perceive in life becomes a story, providing us with a framework to comprehend life, and the creation of art emerges as one of the means through which we achieve this understanding.
