Hope

During my second summer in Canada I worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway in Banff. It was 1953. At the end of the summer I returned to Toronto without any money and registered at Ryerson Polytech Institute in Architecture. I took up residence in a cloth cupboard in a slum dwelling on Gerard Street. It was a transformation from the beautiful mountains to a social hell ! With this painting I tried to express the human feelings of darkness, despair, depression and the hope for light. At the time one of my friends who became a psychiatrist suggested that the painting represents the typical characteristics of a manic/depressive mentally stress person. - I survived - I still like this painting !
