Martinakis Adam - Arthouros|
Statement of fragments >
"I imagine art being a bridge,
a connection between the spirit and the material,
the living and the absent,
the personal and the universal.
My aim is to explore the unknown,
the light and the darkness
of a supplementary coexistence
that forms the event horizon of the creation.
I compose scenes of the unborn,
the dead and the living,
3d visions from a parallel universe."
