2020 has seen unprecedented changes to the contemporary art world. In the absence of the traditional forms of dealing and showing work at art fairs and in exhibitions, galleries have wholeheartedly adopted digital techniques to connect with their public and their collectors.
We all need other people, especially now, to remind us who we are, to make connections, to be creative, to be free.
You are an artist, so create a show with shapes, colours and your own body.
I only wanted to see you in the purple rain
Buckets of Blood is a terrifying tale of a sexy creature with a fetish for gore and guts. Happy Halloween <3
A vision of us vividly echoing in the anterior chamber. Brief glances on the run. Mirroring movements through the loupe. Vitreous bodies as frequent travellers. A look through my eyes.
Body parts as Petri dishes of unspoiled expression. Microscopic changes in us seemingly enlarged. Patiently observing them growing on us. Moonmilk dripping in our shadows, slowly regaining physical form. Impulsively melting together with us into new utopian desires.

Through the translucent, under the veil. Constant longing and filtered emotion. Memories of touch and pressure. Friction of skin on skin. Abstract recollections of a future embrace.
In this portrayal of artist Regina Demina, Mastrandréas aims to ”talk about the violence that the woman’s body has integrated. To reappropriate violence in a deliberate way to overcome it.”.
