ANONYMOUS TASTES
Free Hand Drawing 2007-2010

Indian ink on Arches paper
55cm x 50cm

Anonymous Tastes - phase 2

Just like middle-ages monks behind their walls, illustrating books, creating miniatures based on events, drawing stories out of what they might have never seen, but heard of.
Home, I stay tuned, relating epic and tasty conflicts based on widely broadcasted news. Interpreting and developing virtual stories about our current world.
Rise of societies and conflict of interests. Another big yummy lie?

----------------------------

The Gate of Istambul (2008):

«Couper la poire en deux» (« to cut the pear in two equal pieces»), a french expression used when no agreement can be settled between two parties, unless an even split to solve the deal. While it sounded Turkey was on its way to join the E.U, nothing has concretely changed nor moved. The pear remains entire, stories and speculations are going on, leaders embrace the opportunity to have an ally and safe area to separate western countries from the eastern ones. The pear starts rotting.

----------------------------

Pølse Mix (2008):

Ahhh, the joys of far right politic, working and mixing up with socialistic groups and ideals.
Potatoes and sausages, all sliced and mixed, with salt and pepper. A taste for life and cultures, heritage and diversity! All in a one international plate country, welcome on board… as long as you’re planning to leave this dream
soon.

----------------------------

Brave new world (2008):

The U.S presidential elections, its shows, strategies, game, smell of hope and fresh new promises.
Would history repeat itself? Would tragedy or happiness rule by the time results will be official? Brand new elected one, dead or alive, there will be flowers everywhere.

----------------------------

We are Nowhere and it's Now (2008):

Something was too much in the news. Something with no special taste, something not triggering nor satisfying any kind of appetite. Something just there, to keep you silent, quiet, mindless.
Bread and games, war and pop, conflict casualties and sport result, pink and green, crazy parade to celebrate the All Mighty Non-Sense of the Information. No magic in words, neither alchemy in points
streamed. Just a holy cake of wheat and water, with nothing but tasteless colours. Why thinking we deserve more when we can't realize we're overfed?

----------------------------

A Delightful Conspiracy (2008):

Yo-Ho-Ho!!! Pirates cruising, rampaging the seas. Through the shadow of their black flags are recalled the flying ones. A new story every week, a new chapter every morning, what’s
best to listen to while drinking a nice warm coffee, safe home, not having a tiny thought about why is all of this orchestrated. Where are these desperate individuals coming from, what drove them to become what they are. One or two sugars in your daily brew?

----------------------------

Take a Bite (2008/2009):

Peace treaty, sub-colonization, nothing openly said but everything is happening. Lets tear apart minorities, and on the other hand pretend helping them. To extend power and strategic positions within regions… And sit on the rules. Dividing to conquer.

----------------------------

Why should we mind? (2008):

And yet another race to profit! Oil, shortcuts through the seas, military ground. There’s gold under this white layer… and claim.
Forgot about the sentinels, these who saw the waters rising, the ice melting, their surrounding disappearing. It's time for change, for transformation. It’s melting! Merging!!! Let’s fight for the biggest piece of the cake and mess with it!!!
