Painted in pale primary colours, this picture creates a teeming tide pool of psychogenetic memory flashes with its masks, skeletons, animals, architectural fragments and symbols of ancient cults and religions. Prehistoric and eschatological references combine with crystalline structures into a scattered cosmos of fractured uniformity.
In addition, the artist also shows the culturalized worlds of classical modernism such as Lyonel Feininger, Hermann Finsterlin or Erich Mendelsohn. The faceted pyramids are reminiscent of H.C. Escher as well as those of ancient Egypt, whilst the birds remind one of Pablo Picasso’s doves. Such cultural, historical associations and references stimulate the imagination of the viewer.
