Opening of Exhibition "Images of Memories" by Orion Shima

On Wednesday 7thNovember 2018, the Albanian Embassy in the Netherlands opened the exhibition “Images of Memories” by the well-known Albanian artist Orion Shima.
The exhibition was held in the premises of the Albanian Embassy Art Gallery. The artist was present at the opening reception from 17:00 to 19:00.
This particular exhibition, “Images of Memories”, is a cycle of paintings, an epitome of the artist’s individual memories, an attempt to trick his way into the collective memory. His experimentation is very personal: an archaeology of memories and impressions of no particular time and place. The paintings are not considered to be “realistic” nor “surreal”; they are an attempt of translating the process of involuntary memory into images as an act of knowledge. The paintings are an encounter between past and present.
Mr. Shima was born in 1969 in Tirana, Albania and graduated from the Arts Academy, Painting Department. His first solo exhibition “Angels” was held in 1994 in Ioannina, Greece. Mr. Shima counts many solo and groups exhibitions in Albania, Greece, Italy, Germany, France and USA. 
“Images of Memories” exhibition will remain open until 15 January 2018. You are welcome to visit!
