Project details

These seminal artworks (presented at the Aps Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale 2017 in Malta) under the theme "The Mediterranean: A Sea of Conflicting Spiritualities" are titled "The PromiSSed land". The painted images depict the human aspect of the current immigration crisis happening throughout the Mediterranean. I feel that these works are expressive of the essence of the concept of "waiting" in all its forms. Here "waiting" is an elucidation of a psycological state, an internal turmoil of feelings arising while sitting in a boat that becomes an ephemeral "non-place". These works vividly express the many conflicting feelings that are intertwined with "waiting", such as good and evil or joy and confusion mingled with hope and anxiety for an unpredictable and uncertain future. The Promised land inevitably becomes a "pro-missed" land.
