ARTIST DETAILS

DARKO ZAREVSKI

Macedonia

“Digging out the fragments from the past, mixing them together into a grey collage, a second-hand story. Another stillborn product of the beauty and the beast. Paintings under pressure, paraphrases with the inner one. Cutting the layers, cleaning the metastatic cancer cells. Another puzzle piece. My artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues, often referencing art history, popular culture and subculture. My work explores the varying relationships between popular culture, psychology, and fine art. Recalibrating human morality and the relativity of the same one.”

Michelangelo's David holds an infusion, Naked male Renaissance sculpture with modern medicine tool.
Composition with 2 fields, 2 sides, 2 periods of history.
Religion and science, old and new, classic and modern. An pathetic intervention, nihilistic and more casual and realistic view of wasted beauty, ruined ego, futile talent of biblical hero who is getting sick and fragile just like regular human being who has his ownanixiety and middle-age crises. Maybe he's was standing naked for too long.
