Takis Germenis

Opening: Tuesday 29 March 2011

I imagine an era where the human civilization, after devouring itself, collapsed. I paint this meta-technological era, where into the genes of new organisms that have occurred are being embedded products / remains of the previous civilization. Leftovers of foods and animals that at a time have been produced as products, are being evolved into new organisms that live amongst weired plants and toxic lakes that concur earth…

I paint the explosion of consumerism, the moral values that are being ignored, the impose of the monstrous. The fact that I do that in a surrealistic way is not by my own aesthetic choice, but rather the reality that becomes more and more abnormal, under the domination of the market.
