Description of the Artwork “Duality”

Acrylic on hardboard (masonite), simple wooden frame. Exhibited at 2018 Anno homini 2000+ exhibition in Split, Croatia. This is the allegorical representation of the classical Christian story of Satan tempting Jesus in the desert. Besides the interesting composition stripped of the redundant details the interesting thing is that the two protagonists look alike, as if they were brothers (which in fact they are, if we suppose that their creator is the same). The two opposite poles of the same cosmic principle, yin and yang, representing totality on the basis of division, experience on the basis of negation, light defined by the absence of dark and vice versa; this is a human condition. If we define world in terms of opposite pairs where one defines the other, what direct experience can be possible?

About the artist
Tino Perdić

Tino Perdić, Croatia

Born in 1977 in Split, Croatia. A father and a husband, professor, seaman, programmer, poet and devil's advocate. Regarding my paintings, I consider them to be thought experiments. I take a subject, incite it and observe what happens. The result is often flirtatious with surrealism, but in my case there are no "chance meetings of sewing machines and umbrellas", logic and reason are fundamental to my work. Earlier works focused on contemporary remarks on religion which lead to further and broader exploration of the social and philosophical complexities of the liberal world, on larger formats and with less concern with realistic representation.
