‘Transofmationism’ coined 24 May 2016

‘Transformatism’ a ‘movement name I brought out last year together with the ear drawing, sounded too much like ‘Suprematism’, a ‘would be’ theoretic movement that is sort of incomprehensible, mysterious, and that is why Malevich had and has such an appeal. But we have no clue as to what he tries, expect that perhaps he brings Communist ideology to the ‘divine’ level of Platonic world of ideal forms.

‘Tranformationism’ is my own movement now coined and brought out on 24 May 2016, the day that in the morning I woke up with the absolute desire to now transform myself (rather than matter in art works) and finish all nonsense in myself once and for all: as art used to transform clay and paint and graphite into beauty, and as Socrates sculpted not only stone and clay into new forms, and referred to these acts as a metaphor for transforming the human awareness into a life of reflection, beauty, truth and goodness, so is any art I now make, (and that includes all my actions in life, all thoughts, all movements, all desires, all breath) an act of transformation, an attempt at making me “change the skin of the snake”, but deeper: permeate my cells and atoms with a new life force that is the ‘arch’ (as in primordial) power of transformation – the power that makes new twigs and fresh babies, that makes lotuses that grow out of of dark muddy water, but that carry drops, that reflect light, that exhales perfume, fragrance. Transformationism is the art that contributes to that power and in-built desire of nature.
