First time ever, I didnt want this painting to finish, maybe because the most enjoying part of a painting is detailing, refining the model, making it more realistic and through atmospheric effects and lighting, combining and nitting together the otherwise distict elements. And as you may guess the hardest part is throwing down the first stroke….
The main, essence, idea behind this piece is as ever, the intimate, intensive and strong connection established and sustained between the rocky landscape, the locus, and the body, in this case a temporal techno, construct like a mecha-bird, reminds me of the golden İncan bird I used to watch in the cartoons. The body is sustained and anchored to the earth by gravity and tactile surfaces, preventing it from disengaging and plunging upwards into the clouds but also the very dusty red rocks, gravels form as the foundation from which the material body is formed. Through earth’s core, the lava, and through the fractures and cracks of the rocks, the intense emancipatory energy flows and ignites the body, freeing it from its earthly constraints…… only to reclaim and reproduce it later…..
