My work on the topic — «The body and physicality». Exploring the theme of the corporeal within humans, this series strives to convey the thought that a body is but a component – an instrument, if you wish – of the far more complex and multifaceted being that a human is. Through experimentation with colour, the distortion and reassembly of physical form, its solidity in the mind of the viewer is deconstructed. Two etudes to comprehend — «Stillness Speaks» (left, right). Center — Ginnungagap..
"Shadow Dance" Through chaotic, raging curves of a body in movement – in a blur, where all solid shape dissolves – seeps the idea of the impermanence of the body. Yet despite its unreliability, in a tandem of the body and a mindful consciousness filled with peace, a true merging with nature may be achieved.
«Ocean Inside Us» When a woman makes a baby, she gives it water, inside her body, to grow in. That water inside her body is almost exactly the same as the water of the sea. It is salty, by just the same amount. She makes a little ocean, in her body. And not only this. Our blood and our sweating, they are both salty, almost exactly like the water from the sea is salty. We carry oceans inside of us, in our blood and our sweat. And we are crying the oceans, in our tears. (Gregory David Roberts)
