The Lost Generation


THE LOST GENERATION PROJECT / Part I

The first part of the project focuses on 7 dates. The dates become the titles of the paintings,
stamped on the back as on archival photographs. They are supposed to take you back in time and
ask the question, “What is happening around those dates?”
The dates note events that happened in pre-war Germany when anti-Semitism became overt and influential.
I choose 7 for the sake of symbolism: this political Menorah is leading to the outbreak of WWII and
the destruction  of Jewish People. 
My main focus, though, is the child figure; frozen in the past, still alive, still innocent.
