Art, or should I say ‘Art’, can seemingly be anything…yet art is the most specific thing. What art actually IS evades definition, however, we know that great art innovates as it assimilates the past. Its integrity depends on originality. High art is completely personal… These are the qualities Lord Of The Files hopes to build on, which will contrast with other competing NFT imagery, which focus primarily on aesthetic illustration. While shiny, opalescent, chromed, dripping, honey-covered spaceships oozing with nipples and lusciousness certainly do have an appeal…it is just the superficial attraction of graphics that seduces our optic nerves, minus the content, minus the layers of interpretation, minus meaning. My work can be qualified in many ways, however, for our purposes here, it is important to underline the works’ unique quality. Significant art tends to be different from all the rest…not just a bit different, but RADICALLY different… Indeed, so different as to almost not qualify… to be barely perceptible as art. If the obfuscated spectator denounces the art, claiming it is not art…there is a chance that it actually is art.
Animus extends the boundaries of sight, proposing novel ways of seeing, leading the spectator beyond the image. Animus in Latin meant ‘mind’; the word is related to ‘animate’ and ‘animal’. In this series, the life spark is expressed through the kinetic expression of living creatures. The explosive rush of the cheetah, the lumbering stride of an elephant, the lofty glide of a seabird, all carving through space with their own intricate dances, reveal the spectacular creativity of life, which employs every method of locomotion, yet rejects the straight line.
