The burden of the distance between two doors

In “The Burden of The Distance Between Two Doors,” the artist vividly captures the poignant theme of societal anticipation and the weight of waiting for change. This painting symbolizes the tragedy of longing for a better future without taking active initiative, reflecting the loss of self as a society and nation during moments of waiting. Today, in the face of adversity and uncertainty, we find ourselves once again in this familiar predicament, caught in a tragic comedy of waiting for the unknown. The painting’s powerful imagery conveys the enduring human struggle between complacency and hope for external salvation, while questioning our complicity in seeking solutions from outside sources, all the while enduring with unwavering fortitude and gaining wisdom from our collective experiences.
