“A STRANGE CASE OF NOSTALGIA” – Chris Leib

Where the obvious limits and the social conventions collapse, the weirdness prevails and the borders mix up.
There is no historic context that could fight against the provocative attempt of art when it decides to rewrite the time.
Chris Leib creates on purpose, giving it a new explanation, the present moment where past and future live together, taking inspiration also to the tradition of Reinassance, keeping its elegant recall and enriching it with mysterious ambiguity.
The Ape and the Astronaut are the symbols of an evolution process that took place on our planet, they are the departure and the arrival, the life cycle in its infinite repeating motion .
The distort figures are a way to tell the oddity and the contrast contained everywhere.
In the common normality where we are plunged, we lose the insanity to wander off, giving up to find out the illogical aspect of things because we are afraid to dare.
The artist, on the other hand, is so brave to puzzle the roles, mistyfy the faces, telling us a new odyssey where the sound of a lullaby is able to gather in a nostalgic mood worlds so seemingly far .
