ID Identity

Identity series of paintings was inspired by positive aspects of various experiences of the Holocaust Survivors, political prisoners and Nazi Victims. Each set of paintings is accompanied by an interview with a Survivor. Survivors answered universal questions during interviews like ‘What is the measure of a man?; What advice can you give to the young people?; How do you measure love?’ Define ‘good’ or ‘bad’; How did you deal with pain? amongst many others.
