SuperRare Exhibition Issue No.2: The Anatomy of Human
The following text is curated by Radiosolace
I. Identity – First, we begin with the question of who we are? How does one have an identity? Where does this identity come from? What shapes us?
Human is the intermingling of flesh and consciousness. My work explores the sensations of existing as an infinite being in a finite capsule.
Identity is the solidification of the ideas you use to represent yourself into a fixed state. It is the system used to differentiate ourselves from some and glue us to others. I am not sure who exactly to credit for this, but it my fav zen quote is “identify with nothing” and I think that translates to my work, cycling through styles, techniques, mediums to explore the nameless grey spaces in our individual and group psych. My spirit haunts the body of my work, but there is no identity, each piece is it’s own rorschach.
II. Dream and Spirits – As a human, some of us believe in spirits and dreams. How do these play into our “beliefs” and who we are?
A human is a conceptual creation in this infinite conscious energy field which has manifested itself as one species among the various infinite forms. This self aware energy plays and dances through having interactions with itself, and one of the forms where it becomes self aware of itself and its source energy is called a human. It is only an apparent concept which derives another apparent conceptual story we call identity. The entire creation itself is art or creative spirit and it uses the human manifestation to expand and express its creative love and also its own understanding of itself through self reflection called art.
Dreams are a fluctuation / activity or state of conscious experience much like the waking state, but having its own properties or laws. it is a portal to another dimension which is unique and has its own diverse way of playing and communicating with the self. Spirit is pure unidentified energy. it is formless, beyond comprehension, free, unlimited and wild.. it is all there is and all is the play of the spirit. Spirit is love.
III. Emotion – Human won’t be here if we can’t communicate to one another. Human and some other animals express their emotions. Emotions is a way of communication.
Humans represent duality, neither good or evil but both and the nuances between, individual but connected, and the overall representation of life and death. The intention with the art is to shine a light on those characteristics of humanity, the life and death, the light and dark in us and everything in between. I mean the body literally glows, science has proven that the body emits a small quantity of light, around 1000 times less intense than the levels that our naked eyes are sensitive to. These are the aspects that I’m inspired by and try to represent in the artwork.
