About The Artwork

Size: 100x70cm Medium: charcoal on paper Year: 2015 Frame: framed Condition: ready to hang Signature: signed on the back For this dark charcoal drawing, I used deconstructivist aesthetics with hard, almost brutal strokes to evoke a certain atmosphere of dissolution. Metal fatigue is a common problem in complex systems like airplanes and other machines. A common theme in my works is time. Here it’s the effects of time, aging in particular. As the body is just another machine, it’s prone to aging and fatigue. I chose charcoal as a medium because it’s a mineral that used to be living matter.

I like to question everything. What is reality? What is the truth? What lies beneath the surface of things? People connect to images and symbols through repetition. We recognize something because we've seen it before. Art makes it possible to break this pattern, to create images (in this case) that reflect another order of things, being governed by another set of rules. Isn't that great? Doesn't seeing something new and unexplained excite you? Or maybe it scares you. Maybe you start questioning things, like I do. And that’s when the magic happens. Like listening to your favorite music for the first time, and thinking, well... it’s OK, and than, after listening to it multiple times you were forever hooked by the magic. I Hope this happens to you here. Always expect the unexpected. Darius
