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.
