Artist´s Overview: “Man exists destined to cease existing…
Creation of matter until its disintegration
“My painting Seeds of Aphrodite was inspired by the work "Birth of Venus" by Botticelli, I´ve tried to represent inherent, ever-fruitful, cyclical, fertility with a symbolic pomegranate, but chose to veil transient Beauty itself, which Nature uses as but a means to an end.”
My painting Memoriae Magistrorum (Teachers of Memory) was inspired by the song “Teachers” by Leonard Cohen, I´ve tried to represent death, memories, history, life and the end of something…despite all experience, at the end, the individual is faceless.
“My final painting for the 2019 #Islands exhibition is titled Melancholy, and was inspired by the 2011 movie `Melancholia´ by Lars von Trier, and represents the conformity and acceptance of circumstances… the head of the sitter is replaced by the cosmologic formula for colliding planets that scientists refer to as the Dance of Death.”
