Fortified October, 2010

Masking time: I love the concept of mystery because it’s reflective of life. It holds the essence of newness because it doesn’t ever fully reveal itself. There isn’t anything more intriguing, elusive and ambiguous than the idea of time. Change can be significantly drastic, the shift in transformations become unrecognizable. The outer surface reinvents itself as the internal remains constant. These measures play with the concept of time, commonly understood as a gradual process. I’m known for being a masked artist in a constant state of flux. I evoke that spectrum of human capacity as much as placing the importance on the work and less on my natural being. The art shall prevail and outlive the artist in time.adamo_macri_fortified_october
