La Renaissance is the piece I regard as signifying my rebirth as an artist. It marked a milestone in my life, at a time when I was undergoing a personal as well as an artistic transformation.
The butterflies in La Renaissance symbolize new life, new beginnings. A skull portraying death, or the end of a period, completes the story and starts a new chapter.
It definitely defined the style of much of my later artworks. It paved the road for the development of the distinctive style that permeates my work today.
“In the coming decades, the planet will be transformed into an art form; the new man, linked in cosmic harmony that transcends time and space, will sensuously caress and mold and pattern every facet of the terrestrial artifact as if it were a work of art, and man himself will become an organic art form.”
