"Homes that live in us while we don't live in them" is a bitter recollection of times that passed and their lingering nostalgic memories. 

The stories behind these paintings remain so strong and inspiring. Despite all the uncertainty, displacement and loss the artist, his family and his community suffered, one can still unearth elements of love, beauty and hope in his artwork.
