Octo. Hora Hora
«Octo» is a canvas chassis dedicated to the world of silence, the underwater world and this cephalopod, which I particularly like, emerging from obscure backgrounds, in a cloud of bubbles.
I wished to honor these underwater invertebrates, which mark me by their great intelligence, and their relations with man.
An octopus, by simple observation is able to open a closed jar of a cork, to access food.
You must also know; That for unexplained reasons it also happens that she disposes of the shells or debris around her nest.
Some people compare this behavior to a form of decoration, I would say that it appropriates the place and transforms it so as to feel better and safe.
Moreover, the octopus has a large number of neurons in relation to underwater fauna, and is one of the most intelligent invertebrates in this world.
So I gave my octopus a humanoid look, because I wanted to bring out the correlation that I think exists between the invertebrate and the human (king of mammals) by intelligence, the neuronal expansion of being in relation The ability to solve practical problems to find and achieve an objective or to detect food in his or her environment, and the way in which the two appropriated a place by decorating it for its own sake, Feel better.
The octopus is a singular animal that I have always admired, loved, and that I wanted honored in this painting, for its intelligence with regard to its environment, its ability to adapt to the time that passes given its environment, And for this singularity with man, be endowed also with a strong intelligence in relation to its place of development, and to its acclimatization to the centuries that are eroding…
