Felix Deac

„Exceeding materiality and material conditions, I started to play shaping the forms respecting the logic of the living, intending to give each of my work its own life. Details and textures are taken from the living and real world in order to create a non anthropomorphical compositional whole. My intention is to provide aesthetic qualities to objects and shapes which would offer the public an unexplained existence due to the illusion of living that I create. By the works that I have in mind to exhibit to the audience I am trying to flame visceral reactions, and to put into the game a purely sympathetic and powerful relationship between the viewer and the creation.” – Felix Deac, statement
