Gargoyles, 2000. The gargoyles on the cornices of medieval cathedrals, that were intent to protect and keep evil spirits away from believers, are no longer perceived as frightening monsters. It seems to me that what was monstrous then, it has become ridiculous now. I am trying to express my vision of these horrific new monsters, more monstrous than the old gargoyles, in a series of masks representing horror, cruelty, madness, hatred, disgust. Evil spirits are no longer frightened by scarecrows. They would run away only if they see their own images, unimaginably ugly. Art is not a sweet and joyful play, art is a struggle to convey a poetic and dramatic meaning.
