GUARDIAN ANGELS PROJECT
● The metaphysical nuance of the title is a reference to the special feeling of boundaries mobility...when the will to freedom "mute" the self-preservation instinct in reasonable limits. The consciousness of a Guardian Angel who "grabs" and rescues you. That's the idea-safety net that secures one’s leap into the new spaces and challenges. When you're falling down or flying up, while you are realizing the movement direction and do you really need salvation.
The abstract images interpret the angelic presence as bisexual - angels with the power of the mythical androgynes inhabit the compositions. Rescuers, rescued and many times been rescued.
THE ARCHITECT PROJECT
● The Architect project focuses on existential problems. The eternal theme of the connection between spirit and matter, the spiritual conditions and movements are located in different chronotopes (time and place of action). I conceive our existence as a slow stone sculpture in the process of creation. And for this purpose I chose the monolithic stone as a metaphor of the “beginning” of every human life. The sediment of time builds the personality as a test for free will. The stone gradually acquires individuality in accordance with our choices, and also with the plans of the Great Architect - the Creator. In this sense, I seek to recognize the spirit of Apollo in the...
● Reflections on the selective nature of memory, the subjectivity of perception and the freedom of human will to change it. ● There are landscapes which pass and landscapes which remain. ● Landscape is a synthesis between man and the environment. It can also be a quantum reflection of time in the changing matter or in the immaterial, such as memory is. ● The REMAINING landscapes are fixed more steadily in the memory and they are objectified as a reality that can be proven. They are related to introspection and our internal metrics. ● The PASSING landscapes are vaguely specified, almost on the fiction’s fringes of their reality. They bear no references to any events and personal experiences. ...
PARALLEL REALITY PROJECT
● On the expansion of consciousness and the laws of contingency
● The abstract pictorial compositions are superimposed with author's photographs of nature and the traces of man in it, connected with visual symbols and their presence in the linguistic semantics. ● The message refers to the creative energy of the word, the creativity of self-knowledge, self-reflection as a path to the other and the identity.
● Parallel reality as something not so distant, an alternative for relaxation in a stolen pause… as a reflection in the show cases superimposed on reality or the lights on the wet asphalt. Awareness of what is before our eyes… for joy of light and search for signs without unnecessary fatalism.
● The state of Topophobia, as an object of psychoanalysis, describes the fear of certain places or situations and is a reaction of the instinct for self-preservation. It is an atavistic reflex designed to protect the individual, no matter if the threat is real or imaginary.
The contradiction here is that in case of fear and depression the resources for maintenance of an active state decrease, but in spite of this topophobia is productive. The reaction of the Irritant drives the body in the parabola toward a personal horizon and awakens the latent nomad. It creates a physical and psychological feeling of reality.
● Reflections on Monad and Polyad - the human spirit, its visible and invisible side...The focus is on the divine illumination - the Monad, the imperishability of the proto-spark (Alel); personality in its relations with time, the unity of the individual (latin: individuus – indivisible, integral).
The Monad is interpreted by Baramó as a sphere – a symbol of perfection in its wholeness, the beginning touches the end in order to walk its way towards the new beginning…
