Pl2j loves life. And the people. The love. The air. Painting. Painting means to flow, he says. He adds, you do not have to do anything. It is a gift . This ease is reflected in his work. For example in the pa intings that depicts birds : feathers , air, and profiles of birds combined with an absolute lightness of being.
Living according to Pl2j means to relate the central theme of his art is the community. Eat, drink, spend time at the table. For the holidays we gather around a table set. And the artist in his work gives life to all this, then will the bottles and glasses to celebrate in joy.
We are humans, not machines, says Pl2j. And then, my pain tings show who they are. For example, the paintings in the chain : as in DNA chains allinenano shapes and colors next to each other. As an infinitesimal unit - magnified by the artist - tell the variety of life. On occasion they are also a metaphor for the journey of life itself, the sequence of pain, joy, mountain peaks and chasms.
Life is synonymous with light. Pl2j devotes his paintings and installations plexiglass to the fusion of light and color. Sounds inspired by a transcendent light that reflect the look on a world that goes beyo nd space and time. It is this beauty extrasensibile to move the artists.
Beginning and end, past and future, but also men and women, multiple points of view, joie de vivre that comes from pain: Pl2j the head of Janus is the symbol of this ambivalence. Often in black and w hite, light and dark - faced head embodies an entire period in which the artist lived apart from the world. Now comes out with his work.
