Gregor Gaida often exposes his audience to shattered bits of reality reassembled to form conceptual personifications. Visceral props such as the signal flags in “Rest von Schwarz” (above) embody a cognizant denial of intent by the artist. The viewer is held in a moment that smothers any burden of beginning or end.

This work recalls the ancient proposition by Epicurius in which he stated, “…the sum total of things was always such as it is now, and such it will ever remain.” It is an aphorism that has rippled through various incarnations of physics, religion and art. Polarity is often mistaken as evidence of difference whereas Gaida accepts this atomic desire for balance as proof of the universal.
