Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (344)
My Bio
Martinakis Adam - Arthouros

Statement of fragments >
/ Imagining art being a bridge, a connection between the spirit and the material,
the living and the absent, the personal and the universal.
/ Exploring the unknown of light and darkness in a supplementary coexistence
that forms the event horizon of the creation.
/ Composing scenes of the nonexistence, the echo of the living void,
immersed in the metaphysics of perception.

Happy New Year form both of us!
UNtitled
deignis commented on Puente by deignis
Beauty is an abstract meaning, like god, everybody sees him in his own way.
The same is life, although we, who live, have it, we don't live it in the same way.
Everything is fleeting, changing and moving, the same is the food.
Food is good and maybe beautiful mostly because you need it to survive, if you wouldn't need it probably you wouldn't look for beauty in it.
Coming back to my work, as I said, they (forms) might be decaying but they are still alive and moving and forming and symbolizing,
sometimes they might be depressing from the root, that is me or my inspiration but what they symbolize I don't think it's sad.
Anyway, my aim is not actually the beauty. Beauty is efemeral. It is a tool not the essence.

Everything in this world is rotting, rusting, bleeding and decaying anyway. This should not depress you, but help you enjoy what you have now.
