"Us in medieval clothing" started with a lifetime dream, a desire to be united with my brothers and sister in one place. We are 5 in total and we were not raised together, and I always dreamed of the possibility to be united in one picture. This brought me to a dreamy idea of a painting depicted in heaven, this idea has also to do with my christian upbringing. However I wanted to use the medieval clothing representing the slaves wearing the clothing of their masters secretly. Therefore we are barefoot in the paintings. The slavery depiction is important because it have had an important manner in my upbringing and also my reasoning. As a matter of facts i'm using different connotations of my childhood in these paintings, which is affirming the importance of the term family in my works. However these paintings were firstly made as a sketch to my later painting: "It was always about colors and numbers".
