From the catalogue:
All the works that the artist produces lately is dominated by the following creative fore-sentence, as a new loop…
“To produce artistic structure/form from daily activities and to intend to question references of traditional art on this basis.”
Artistic activity starts from the documentation of a specific house, glass doors opening to the balcony, with the interior it frames, with the objects and the subjects, with the composed wall and the window in it, at 48 different times, in 48 different lights, the things it contains, reflects, implies, recalls.
The original work is composed of 48 details as shown-chosen in the structure.
48 “window” images are ones more divided into 48 equal parts and the chosen parts are applied on canvas in acrylic.
From the notebook of the production process
… The curtains are drawn, the bird cage put out in the sun, breathing a cool summer day.
… The shadow of the antenna is dividing the wall exactly the way I wanted in the late afternoon light.
… Night, I wanted all the objects that are seen in the light of the interior, especially the emptiness with no human beings.
… One has to pursue the plastic experience that by no means decodes the room-space; so that, -even though people are not accustomed to see their houses across- if the subjects of the room-space ever encounter with artistic activities, a probable familiarity should not cause any reaction.
…45 minutes before the sunrise: The most hidden, the most birth-like experience, the most satturated, the most evenly spread light.
