I try to link the antique sculpture skills and the beauty of marble statues with the contemporary present. I want my art to be a colourful and positive combination of present and past themes.
Everyone knows how to move in a room. Even a small child can move naturally in the third dimension. There is height, length and width. But there's something else that affects our life congenitally. There is time. Time draws our attention to the volatility of life. Feromontana's sculptures teleport us to the fourth dimension. They give us space-time. They give us the awareness that we are ephemeral and sharpen our perception. This is the first function of art.
In the space-time dimension, we experience a sort of time travel. "If we could only return in time, we could fix the mistakes we made". Through these thoughts mistakes become a symbol of reflection. For, as thinking beings, we know, of course, that there is no way back. But as feeling beings, we still want to be alive in memories. This is the fascination of the fourth dimension. Old sculptures come from the past as inanimate matter, and Feromontana invigorates them with a new skin. The present is the only moment we can genuinely be in. To recognize this, is the second function of art.
Sooner or later we ask ourselves. Will it take a long time, or will it happen quickly? How many hours will it take? Time is measurable. We measure with watches. But: Can you actually be in the middle of time? The possibility of time travel would mean that the whole universe is returned to a certain state in the past. For this, however, more energy would be needed than the universe has at its disposal. Therefore the solution is quite simple: always start in the moment. In the fourth dimension of art, this means re-shaping the sculptures and thus recreating them for the future. The third function of art.
Dimension is the extension in a direction that can not be represented by subordinate dimensions. The fourth dimension is not time alone. The fourth dimension is space-time. The hyperspace. As cosmic beings, we distinguish between prehistory and time. And so Feromontana, the creator of four-dimensional art, adds: Do not think about what you see, but what you feel when you are touched by the invisible power of space. This is the fourth function of art.
Fractals are examples of the fascination of the hidden dimensions of nature. Fractals can be found by dividing a thing over and over again. Thus order can be found in chaos. Fractals form the core of life. Fractals are elements of the fourth dimension of nature. Mathematically, fractals are generated by iteration. It is a process of multiple repetition of the same action with the aim of finding particular solutions. We recognize the iteration in Feromontana clearly in the colourful patterns and forms.
Feromontana therefor is the Creator of four-dimensional Art.
