I could see for miles, miles, miles


“When you invoke something transcendent you arrest movement” - Deleuze

Holocene, Calgary, Perth, Minnesota - allegorical sceneries of a fatal fall that washed us all ashore in what we sustain today. Anesthetized from everyday routine, people forget that we walk on a planet whose ground is filled with bones. Try to understand this futility of life through Art and have faith in a love profane yet glorious, that does not have the shape we usually attribute to her. Many times in the acknowledged patterns (relationships, cohabitation, marriage, et al.) there is no trace of love but fear and abandonment. Henceforth, you realize that while you were looking for God in any plausible den, he lay at your threshold all along. And it is my belief that if this God is love – attainable gratuitously and free in an elusive and pivoting moment of creation and existence, then art is a form of prayer, the humane way of appealing to Him.
