DUSTOGRAPHY IV

I worked on this painting in my 38th and 39th weeks of pregnancy, waiting for Meira, my first daughter, to be born. Today I finished this painting dedicated to her, but she still doesn’t seem decided to jump into the world.

TRANSMOGRAFIILE LINIARE

De multă vreme am ajuns să consider mare parte din schițele realizate în trecut (în perioada 2002 – 2012) ca fiind o materie și materiale ce trebuie digerate și reintegrate într-un circuit prezent de creație. Selecția acestora și timpul petrecut studiindu-le, analizândule, sau doar pur și simplu observându-le, depozitându-le și restaurându-le a înlocuit de fapt orice act prezent de creație cu o ștergere minuțioasă a amintirilor. Amintirea, ca apofantică, are întotdeauna o acțiune recursivă, raza ei se întinde asupra vieții mele actuale, ea este o intruziune în viața mea. Reutilizarea acestor schițe ar fi o curățire lăuntrică ce mi-ar da posibilitatea să renasc în și prin propria creație, dar nu ar fi propriu-zis o ștergere, cât un amplu proces de reparație și de petrecere a timpului.

A FILM

Presumable script

Presumable script

 

M: Sort of …. there … I think these bodies are rather events than objects, which I find a little disconcerting. This implies death.

M: It is precisely the act of mental reconstruction of an event, this is a post conflict situation. This is the monstrosity sparing itself a pause. Just because there are thoughts and feelings on which we cannot discuss, or which would be so trivialized by word and figuration … it does not mean they do not exist, right? Continue reading

“Sometimes, you feel like punching in the table and cry aloud: – Enough, let the time alone, time is intangible,

time should not be challenged! Is space not enough for you?

Space is human, in space you can frolic as much as you want, you can tumble,

you can roll over, you can jump from one star to another. But (…) do not touch the time! (Luigi Pirandello, excrept from “The Notebooks of Serafimo Gubio”, own translation into English) Continue reading
