U N N AT U R A L I will go to the thread of Ariadne, and I am following your traces as a contemporary “inorganic artist” [iv]. I mean inside the human body. You shiver me, Liber (I know you like aesthetic shivering, what would you do without it?) with your invasive style in the human body structure. You strongly enter - as a surgeon in and dissect, divide with the aesthetic scalpel meat pieces, human skeleton parts and you place them cynically on a metal/ technological support, replacing life, blood, nerves, and veins with the cold skeleton of industrial matter. Basically, you drain the life and replace it with something that brings a very life. I do not know whether you intend to draw the signal on the decay of life, the process of decomposition of the livelihood or even of the overlapping of the nourishment on death, of the interlocking of the three faces of the whole: life-death-hybridization. I really do not know! But your works become finally anatomical. Do you know what saves them from Cut, Paste, and noLife?! - You play, you assassinate, you cut, you drain the life from the biological body and then mimic it, endowing the anatomical material with the pictorial blood, in a “lively object-painting”, transforming it into an inorganic study sequel, into a contemporary aesthetic object. (L. Bibart, Art Review)

HUMAN IMPERFECT The body ego, as Freud said, that is, the most primitive and physical and organic ego. It becomes clear that the violent conceptual explosions that have recently taken place were decisively influenced the re-definition of body images, of body perceptions. Fifty years ago, the Francis Bacon thought, aimed to restore the body “to a kind of dignified, animal resignation”. For him, art was about ribs and forearms and eye sockets. “It was about flesh over bone. Bacon never forgets that flesh is meat”. In my case, the bone become excessory, the flesh becomes inflesh, an inorganic re-definition. The purveyor of inflesh of all kinds, as an inflection, of livid and brilliant hues: phthalo greens, cobalt blue, eerie pale or saturate red and shocking yellows, sepulchral titanium whites, black ivory and ritually primitive lines. The excessories of my artworks, steel and fiberglass erection, conjure unlikely anatomies and intelligent devices (nanotech, A.I.). My artistic approach and acclaim the spectacular extremes of bodily manipulation by new technologies, the deconstruction of corporality(Derrida) and evaporation of the body into virtual(Deleuze), moving towards to a new aesthetics, butchering of the ideal body as a gift from nature.
