Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Latex on Canvas.

The forests were in fact commonly reffered to as the locus neminis, or “place of no one”*. Locus Neminis revives the theme of the forest as an itinerary and an absolute ideal, as an adventure in the unknown and lost paradise, as a return to the origins and nucleus of humanity, as a place of mystery and human aspirations.

What does one see vertically or laterally in a dense forest ? [To look at a tree and see not the leaves, but the space between]. The mute closure of foliage. The boundless oblivion of the dormant mind. A sudden illumination of nothingness. How to picture the sky to oneself in the aspect of a huge animated body: a body not seen but imagined as there beyond the treetops. (based on a citation from *Robert Pogue Harrison “Forests – The Shadows of Civilisation”, pag. 4)

By an internal industry and expansion, our body renews. The snake casts its slough, the caterpillar its wormy coat. The loon retires to solitary ponds to spend it. Our moulting season,[ like that of the animals] must be a crisis in our lives. [In search of a new body] (based on a citation from Henry David Thoreau, Walden – Economy, pg. 22)

The paintings Delirium / Pleasure and Flow of Zăercs are made over my older paintings. It is a recurrence in my artistic path to paint over compositions that have been wrapped and finished in the past, transforming and destroying at the same time.
