To begin this description, let me start with this question: Is it the internal side of things that is more important or is it what is presented to us visually? Naturally, the human notices the appearance of things and deals with things that have a direct connection with the senses without considering what is behind them. This makes one go directly to a materialist mindset. It is a mentality that drives one to consider things only from the surface while trapped in a corner in the judgment of only the shape of things observed. So I find the perfect way to describe my project, Primitive Life, as a process of connecting shapes from the internal cells of the human body from which comes the inner sociological forum of that body, expressing it visually and using color as harmony. While extracting the visual values, composing the forms of the cells and representing them in a new abstract way, I express the primitive side of life, concentrating on this often neglected part for the human experience/observation. This expression helps to create a community line of thinking and a social consciousness making it easier to find a common language for all human beings to understand and deal with each other. All the while knowing more about the special world of the artist and creating an arena of communication between the artist as the main subject and the community around him.
