>>rajd ej hors<< / Ride a Horse (2009)

work, >>rajd ej hors<< / Ride a Horse is a simple traditional animation with a triple-meaning title: - to ride a horse (a potential fact) - to use heroin (heroin user slang) - to be successful (as a metaphor)

A horse gallops without moving in a boundless space and the time has come for me to decided what to do. Am I going to go return to nature's embrace?

work, >>rajd ej hors<< / Ride a Horse is a simple traditional animation with a triple-meaning title: - to ride a horse (a potential fact) - to use heroin (heroin user slang) - to be successful (as a metaphor)

A horse gallops without moving in a boundless space and the time has come for me to decided what to do. Am I going to go return to nature's embrace? I am not going to get high on drugs because I like to play it safe. But because my work has been nominated for the OHO competition, I would like to be successful.

I channel my work through myself/my ego in an intensely emotional manner. I examine the concept through various media as far as I am able, and if I don't know or understand something, I ask someone who does. I judge which solution is ideal or best suited for presentation. Once completed, the work has a sense of simplicity about itself. What I see/read/nearly understand - this is what a work of art really is.

The most realistic image is shown when something breaks unexpectedly. With the help of various sources and environments I have constructed a system which allows me to make a choice when completing a project. I call this my 10-point project preparation system. At first glance the artworks appear as cut-outs from comic strips and sketches, some think they are fragments from board games or lids of strange candy boxes. The keywords that help me through my creative process: - what is the actual truth? - fucking - rock and roll - life in the future - sleeping outdoors - having enough money - enjoying rest time - the aroma of party - violence of authority - perseverence and a fighting spirit and physical endurance - ODDS AND ENDS
