The work “Dialogue with the Self” that I’ve painted at the beginning of 2019 reminds us of the philosophical “mind-body problem”, as a replica to the “Aristotle with a Bust of Homer” painting. In the post-modernity era, the human being considers abandoning the body for something better, for breaking the limits for transcendence. Together with this comes the idea of metamorphosis which I speculate in my art. Everybody can leave the mediocrity to become extraordinary. To make a visual representation to this Nietzschean belief, “I have separated my mind from the body” and I have created so two distinct entities.
In 2019 institutions and museums around the world mark this year 350 years since the death of Rembrandt van Rijn, organizing various events in memory of the master. I have curated the group show “Remembering Rembrandt”; “Dialogue with the Self” was one of the works exhibited in this show.
