THE NUDE

In 1993 i took the form of the naked Body and liberated it

from all it's political, cultural, religious and sexual power.

I valuated and scrutinized the status in which the nude was

celebrated in Western Art at this point.

As a painter i resisted any technical assistance e.g.

computer, to construct and produce these paintings.

By breaking down the Sfumato (indistinct effect got by

gradually blending together areas of different colors),

and blowing up the form out of it's normal proportions,

by introducing the Pixel as a part of it's composition,

i was able to change the visual Formula ,transporting it into

another Dimension.



THE SEX

My work challenges the visual understanding of the fine

balance between the power sex has on art and

the power art has on sex.

Is the Nude less naked or sexual, when exhibited in places

designated to art ?

The increasing need and demand in a "clearer picture" led

me to deliberately irreverse the process of observation,

while the " clearer picture" is often created in the mind.



THE PIXEL

The result is, that these images of the male and female

form, with all it's fragility and softness of the flesh,

the nakedness and sexual substance, appear to be

protected by a veil of a visual fabric.

With this hard edged geometrical ordered mosaic , which

segments everything into equal squares

i recognized their power to connect, transmit and interact

with their neighboring fields,

without loosing definition.

This minute, but important element ( pixel) witnessed

already in the history of art, in form of pointilism,draws

fine lines between the abstract and realism, the

chaos and order in the complexity of visual communication.



THE TITLES

A global language.

Following the metaphor, that women come from Venus and

men come from Mars,

i documented my work with the names of mountains,

valleys,gorges and planes drawn from the terrain maps of

these planets.

I can see this space becoming an art form in itself in which

we move constantly and except

our self's as sexual beings and perceive our world around

us and view and study worlds

which lie outside of our reach of comprehension.
