Statement
How much can one learn about an artist by looking at his work? A review of painter Bender´s latest pieces reveals a great deal about the artist´s life and energy-charged passion in his painting.

Scenes conveys a sense of peace, while at the same time, Bender´s bold use of color and strong compositional elements convey the intense beauty the artist sees in the world around him, and what`s going on inside. His paintings invite the viewer on a journey behind the surface, behind the image surface, to explore a world that maybe lies far from the everyday life. Or as a gallerist expressed: "there rests an elegance of your paintings".

Migration | Tolerance - Intolerance “Migration | Tolerance - Intolerance”

Should the right to migrate be controlled?
Is it only reserved for the impoverished and conflicted?
Who defines the parameters of approving or denying a person’s desire to migrate?
Is it a political issue dabbling in morality.
Is it the good country versus the bad country.
What if for every person who wanted to migrate,
a person from the host country migrated to the immigrant’s country.
Would this change the debates, the rules, and the right to migrate?
Would migration even be an issue?
