What I felt when I saw is what I saw when I felt (2018)

To name a thing means giving it borders, limits, to drag it out from the anonimity in which it was before. (Gabriel Liiceanu, “On limit”)
The usage of any kind of language can be regarded as both an act of restraint or allowance of the unshaped to fit in a configuration. In the given world tremor, is one’s sensuous journey relevant to the geography of time? There is both a loss and a gain in articulating a meaning to the unshaped. Especially when one’s sensuous language does not fit canons of perception. Synaesthesia in neuroscience, is a cognitive cross- perception phenomena, in which stimulation of one sense leads to involuntary acti- vation of other senses. Whereas synaesthesia is responsible for making possible the creation of systematic language, it also plays an important role in developing the artistic language, from a more subjective positioning. This both captive and free content of expression beholds the essential intrigue of a maze and resembles the anatomy of confusion.
What I felt when I saw is what I saw when I felt (2018) is an intention of staging the mundane, the irregular internalisation of its regularity, denominated here as the unshaped, and exposed as a choreography of senses by visual means. Originating in the immediacy of one’s expression within a framework in which painting is a language, synaesthesia a tool, abstraction a given, perception a space, the physicality becomes a symptom. The internalised visual, sonic and olfactory material of diverse improvised provenances, seek the creation of a new body of work, of whose meaning is puzzled and channeled into another form of perception. Once obvious, the matter, ideas, sounds, shapes and the referential space they inscribe - the maze - pursue wider, deeper and clueless dimensions; their expression chases something more than a central knot to be unbundled.
