“Papa #1” is related to my dear father who just turned 93, living in a retired home in France. Due to health issues, the residents are not allowed to get out, since so so long… And the lack of any kind of interactions with the outside world has a tragic impact on the mind. All that is left is to dream… I have tried in this painting to express the feelings of my father, by creating a strong contrast between the inside and the outside.
