The artist, it is true, does not see any differencebetween the Virgin Mary carrying Christ in her arms under Saint Joseph's gaze and a mother from the slums of Beirut, holding her child under the father's eyes.
In fact, everything blends together.
The concrete is bonded with these hieratic silhouettes evocative of religious rites.
The artist feels and sees, unaware of whether his painting is a protest against an unjust social situation or a straight and simple sentimental approval of compassionate sympathy, and even unaware of whether or not it is the environment
which imposes its themes upon his paintings.
