"We cannot achieve happiness only through the desire to be happy. It must be the unintended consequence of pursuing a goal greater than ourselves" (Victor Frankl)

Personalization, that is, giving reality personal features, through what I understand adapting it to my own individual needs.  This is to optimize the factors that enable us to achieve happiness.

Art allows me to express my identity.

Art is welcoming of every form of self-expression, including sexuality.

"Olympia"

My new paintings are referring to the famous work by Edouard Manet's "Olympia" presented at the 1865 Paris Salon. Critics didn't take this work well upon its debut. The audience, represented mostly by  white men from Parisian elites, criticised not only Olympia's naked body (posing a direct threat to the bourgeois male viewer by revealing a wealthy sex worker in her boudoir demonstrating her rather bold and controlled nudity) but also a black maid presented in post colonial style (with issues of race representation), just fifteen years after slavery had been abolished in France.
