Set it Free


Mixed-media painting on masonite.

Size: 15.75″X20″

This painting is about the identity related struggles of immigrant children. Immigrants come to Canada bringing with them the cultural traditions of the country of their origin. Sometimes, it is difficult for the second or third generation to adhere to those cultural constraints. The cultural values that the parents proudly preserve and impose on their offspring become like a suffocating noose around the neck for the children.

Mixed-media painting

If you truly love something/someone, set it free!

This is a thought provoking mixed-media painting about the reality of many immigrant families. When we come to Canada we bring a piece of our culture, traditions and values of our native country. We insist that our children follow the same even though they may be born & brought up here. It is a real struggle when the children want to adhere to the Canadian values, language and traditions and the parents pull them in the opposite direction.
