What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
A child of the eighties is the prototype for the New Flesh. They are the children of the digital age, children of the first generation cyborg. The body had transformed. Post-modernism had introduced a new era in art. Computers, television, cartoons and comics became my and my realm to explore and inhabit. I was drowned in images of cyborgs, super heroes and machines in the land of the hyper real. The cyborg became my own, I identified with the concept of such a being.
My early work concentrated on the ‘bare bones’ of the cyborg. It carries no flesh, it is the basis of my work in progress. It is naked and stark as is the central feature in Duchamp’s ‘The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors.’ The drawings are pure cyborg, without embellishment. They are infantile and simplistic in their appearance but not in their construction, being drawn in one continuous line.
Art is my life, I see my work as beacon of it’s time, a head of time, and before it’s time. I see my work as the neo-renaissance. I am motivated by transcribing the sociological constructions of my age, the evolution of the flesh. Art for me is a cathartic process, I lose myself in my work, art is for me is life time commitment.
Art is the mirror to shatter the foundations of reality, Art for me is a reflection of the coming state of mankind, flesh anxiety, the departure into a new being…..
