Highlites from AFTER TIFFANY opening

After Tiffany - is my 6th solo show in New York. Coincidentally it was part of the 6th Annual LIC Arts Open Festival. At this show I presented 13 works through which I went after a message of personal story.

Who can be happy?
And who talks about wanting to be happy but doesn’t know how?
Is my happiness a choice?
High pressure and extreme temperature became normal.
And we went under earth.  
And we went digging and digging,
And when I almost was ready to give up right there, deep underground Hard rock under extreme pressure and extreme high temperature transformed into a diamond.
People say only under these circumstances, only in this heavy way the diamond can be born.
While listening to jazz we put that diamond on my finger.
And after tiffany…after tiffany, it didn’t become easier or cooler.
After tiffany it is not all in greenish blue.
And that is how I know we have a chance to find more of those precious stones.   

 During the introduction speech to the show I recited my first poem in English
