Primitive Forms of Temporal Defiance

 

With a myriad of vessels throughout his studio and home, Komarin finds inspiration from such traditional forms partly due to their timeless nature.

“All cultures have had to find ways to transport water and other fluids from one location to another–water, milk, wine, blood–for practical and ceremonial reasons. I have long been fascinated by the structures and shapes of these traditional objects, particularly those of the most humble and demure variety. An early Egyptian, Mayan or Greek vessel has great poise and statute. Painting vessels is a very plastic activity – it has allowed me a great deal of playful variation. One never knows how they will wind up.”
