Painting: Oil on Canvas.
This is as a photo made by a moment and without a reason. Was inspired by the novel 'L'étranger' by Albert Camus.
Borderline state of Consciousness. A state in which two extreme points of our presence here – Birth and Death – are visible from afar. From a distance the segment between these two points (Life) seems extremely short. Recede back – and it has turned into an instant, a flash. Flashes of Consciousness, half-forgotten blurred snapshots taken by objective-lens-eye, randomly selected fragments of the past. What is Consciousness? May well be the glass between the eternal and ephemeral Worlds. How does one portray this Glass without depicting anything behind it? How does one go beyond the boundaries of a window-image, a painting in the frame? having been current since the Renaissance? How does one picture this invisible Glass as primary importance, but the matter behind it as inessential? Scratches on the lenses. Incorrectly adjusted focus. And Light refracted in Glass has accidentally revealed its physical Presence.
