Cosmos, bir uzay macerası
zaman ilerledikçe, herşeyin düzensizliğe doğru ilerlediğini hissedebiliyorum.
bu düzenli kitap sayfalarını savurduğunda hepsinin düzensizce dağılması örneği gibi basitçe açıklayamayacağım birşey.
zaman, hayatta bulunduğum noktayı da dağıtıyor. ben peşine takıldıkça bana birbirinden farklı seçenekler sunuyor ve ben giriştiğim her adımda başkalaşıyorum.

One of the strangest truths about human bodies is their inherent excess. They’re never “just” physical objects, but also self-aware material, both the thing and a generator of ideas about the thing. It’s our idiot brains, basically, that makes the body so weird. Our self-perception spawns an infinite series of reflections that exceed the simple meat of the body itself.
Visual art has often foregrounded the oddity of our people suits, and Erik Svetoft explores this to a wonderfully bizarre and grisly extent. Svetoft’s bodies are (as others have noted) fluid, molten things that appear to be in states of constant d/evolution.
This textural dimension not only showcases Svetoft’s skill with ink, lines, and color, but also effectively delimits his subject matter. Svetoft sets his weirdo skin puppets in a huge variety of environments and situations, enhanced by each piece’s unique saturation and slightly demented sense of play. Larger pieces are especially textural, illustrating Svetoft’s hypergraphic tendencies and thematic complexity. It is, overall, one of the most uncompromisingly intense artistic projects around.
