ARCHmetamorphism #8456

Works of ARCHmetamorphizm project depict refraction of the author’s vision of architectural elements in a photograph. Architectural sculpture transforms into fanciful forms as if small pieces of glass create a new geometrical reality after the turn of a kaleidoscope. Within such a transformation the original meaning of the utilised subjects are lost, they are no longer apartment or office buildings, or historical monuments, they become only the elements of a certain author’s vision, entering an aesthetic context.
Taking this path and losing its individuality, architectural elements become part of the author’s game with space, creating mosaics in which chaos takes arranged geometric patterns. Now the elements of objective reality are no longer perceived as such, and appear as either paintings of an outline of human chromosomes, as if accidentally compiled patterns in a media player, or as a virtual matrix reality when millions of numerals run along the screen at breakneck speed creating a new aesthetic reality.
Objects caught by the author are buildings from which architectural space is being built like a pattern of a new town planning scheme. All the photographs become parts of a construction set as they can be matched in any consequent modelling of a new landscape.

Invisible fear of loneliness

The Invisible fear of loneliness ( Quantum involvement) Statement On the surface of a sea, a white particle of a light, having no mass or size, strives for the perfection. Aspiring to infinity, where it should find it’s second half. With the speed of 300 km in an hour, it runs from the black surface and breaks through the space on a surface of a sea. The lonely Phiton moves even faster then a light, for the defeating of loneliness. In the project “The invisible fear of loneliness”, an author compares human aspiration for finding their second half to the Phitons chaotic movements. Mutual dependence of the light particles, during the quantum involvement can be perceived as an analogue to the ideal relation between a man and a woman. No matter how far the Phitons are from each other, despite the distance, they don’t loose the contact with each other. Phitons in quantum involvement are under a constant interaction. Auto-Phobism – the fear of loneliness. Perhaps, it would be strange if there do not exist any such a phoby. The fear of loneliness is a part of life. The fear of what will be in the future. The Loneliness in the present may not be so dramatic at all. The invisible fear appears, when you start to think about how long the loneliness will last. The particles of the light in the boundless sea. The space, were no ends are seen. In this case the sea is the universe, in which we live and in which’s infinity we strive not to be alone.

Personal Paradigm

The FotoLoft Gallery presents a personal exhibition of Zura Arabidze, a Georgian photographer and artist.   Fifteen black and white psychological portraits… and no people on them but projection of the author’s emotions.
Zura Arabidze sees his models as a reflection of his perceptions; this is why they are different from the real ones. They are personification of his personal paradigm.
Images living inside of us, dreams, fantasies, the sky we looked through the sleepless nights, houses in which we used to live, all our memoirs remain inside of us, creating the person, the unique Universe of individual existence. And these are the objects of this personal Universe that Zura longs to demonstrate to the audience through the portraits.
For a photographer, the world surrounding is a reflection of his personal spirit, a mirror of his mental model and of his perception model. Therefore, taking pictures of people, Zura discovers something from himself, digs it from the depth of their subconsciousness and imprints; he superimposes his personal images on fading faces which become just the intermediaries of the author's spiritual beginning into the external world.
Overlaying of the shots and drawing on the print allow achieving a stereoscopic picture, uncertainty of senses; the strongly pronounced black and white contrast focuses you on the emotional content of the work. The faces are somehow breaking through the darkness of unbeing to the light and finding a new life in the author's photo-works.
There is something mysterious in Zura's works; in each print, the author gives us the symbol leading us to decoding of the picture. The shot superimposing is as overlaying of various layers of life; the figures reminding of cave art are engraved on the face as the experiences of the life journey.
The photographer catches the part of the face, which concentrates the artistic idea and leaves everything distracting in the darkness.
So, mixing different techniques, the artist as though balls the picture senses clue.
