“The expressive figures featured in my work represent the relationships a person will have with himself, with his surroundings and with other people.

I distort them because we all have flaws: I can’t create perfect forms because they don’t exist.

I behead my characters because nowadays we’re faced with such a dismal reality that it feels as though we’ve lost our heads.”

“Everything is muddled; nothing is clear.

The so-called leaders, whether political, economic or humanitarian, have nothing to offer, and people are bewildered.

I see all this as a body without a head, without the ability to think or project a vision.

Today’s world leaders love nothing more than to deceive people and lead them towards an uncertain future.

So, according to me, our head is missing!”

Over here in the Tema lair, we can totally relate to this, though we categorically reject all forms of physical violence and hasten to add that we have no thoughts about beheading anyone at anytime.

The individuals in question seem to be able to accomplish it all very neatly and frequently without any assistance.

What we do is assist in fixing problems within the attached head when called upon to do so.

The last 24 months have not been easy and we have tried to document, explain and share some of the reasons.

But maybe we ought to consider that just like the Geto Boys, my “mind is playing tricks on me” [https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DLsU23AEmDLs&ved=2ahUKEwjKsdO1u5b3AhVIxoUKHVXsBXkQwqsBegQIThAB&usg=AOvVaw1v0iWFLODkhNUddpE6AWR8]

Around here gaslighting is quite often the order of the day.
