Laila Sahrai (1975)

'Jong Talent 2007 _ ArtEZ AKI Enschede'__________

Since seven years I'm looking for the truth, - provoked by cultural diversities. Meanwhile I am aware of the fact that truth has many faces. Every time when I thought that I had found one I was immediately confronted with the opposite. But it doesn't mean that the opposite is a lie! No, it's "only" the reality. It neither means that the reality is the truth. But the truth, which I thought that I had found, seemed also wrong - somehow.
Sounds paradox, absurd, I'm confused.
So what is the truth?
It must be something in-between. But this "in-between" doesn't seem to have a form. It appears like a hole, a gap, an emptiness - and I accept the challenge to fill it. My only implements are my brushes, paints and drawing tools. In my works I'm trying to build "intertruthal" bridges and find an order in the chaos......it's a fight for my own freedom......
do mistakes exist anyway? Aren't they just chimeras of people who don't see the truth or who are just too weak to face it?............. a pretty sensitive theme which is screaming for a composition.....
