Entanglement of Opposites Series:
Working at the intersection of science, philosophy and art, and using a portfolio of economical abstract geometric forms - the "readymade" building blocks of visiion - I aim at triggering in the viewer’s mind a visual sense of the relationships that exist throughout the physical, mental and spiritual world, inhabited by opposites and unsettled by its precariousness and entanglement.
At the physical level my paintings visualize, in a minimalistic way, the predicament of physicists who stand at the crossroad of a deterministic world and a statistical quantum world with no signs of reconciliation. Their quandary is now expressed in mind-boggling terms such as "many-worlds", "quantum entanglement", "principle of uncertainty", concepts that certainly are challenging to the visual artist who dare to venture into the maelstrom.
At the mental level, which encompasses both our emotions and thoughts, relationships are no less baffling, teetering between love and hatred, submission and rebellion, belief and doubt. If the mental world is built upon the physical world, then what are its most basic components: the quark of hope, the quantum of illusion, the wave function of beauty? What is the nature of the relationship between perception and emotion, between experience and imagination? Can my paintings be simplie constructs of visual stimuli that engenders a moment of "enlightenment", piercing their fleeting appearance?
At the spiritual level, they may evoke the paradoxical relationship we as humans have been struggling to establish or maintain with our fellow human beings and the universe.
Unlike the Sciences, Art has no interest in finding a Theory of Everything, for it is in the state of entanglement of opposites that Art reveals itself. Besides the three layers of possible meaning s - physical, mental and spiritual - I invite viewers to bring their own interpretations for my world is an open world.
In the sense I am trying my best to keep my emotions at bay from my art, I may be said to be inspired by Duchamp, and the artist who most mýteriously picked up where he left off: Jasper Johns.
