Vian Sora Iraq artist, living, experiencing, painting

Saturday, February 25, 2006

Women are constantly challenged in this new Iraq. Awaiting their moment of peace, struggling to raise children while nurturing a family, maintaining a pulse within a war torn country, all of this and more strains the essence of feminity, quells the aspirations for civil rights and leaves hope suspended. And in this land, life continues against the greatest of odds. Simply, these paintings delicately touch the image of women within a frontier of unknown limits and unknown ends.

I've saved Fortune Teller so that I can look at it and enjoy it many more times. Thanks for the email invitation, but I'm engaged on the other side of the world this weekend.

Do you have knowledge of this:

If true I'm shocked. This war has made me research everything from
"soup to nuts!" (old American expression) I now even doubt their is a God.

Be well and safe,

Some of your paintings reminds me of Chagall.
There are so much light in your paintings.

Hello Vian.
I'm from Chile, South America and must say that i'm very impressed of your work cause it's kind of oniric and with a eastern flavor (at least it seems to me)that makes your pieces specials.
Your showing of respect to your ancient mesopothamean roots makes you more admirable, because I´m a great admirer of them as the cradle of civilization.
Congratulations again, and wish you the best.
