Dairo’s new project directly confronts the vulnerability of the physical human condition whilst offering the potential for its spiritual journeying. On canvas, the artist provokes us to consider the ultimate values of love, life, death and all else that we go through as sentient beings.
The powerful raw bodies further challenge our beliefs regarding the material form and ask if it is possible to release it from pain and suffering. The dance, movement and flight in the paintings fully realise such liberation and freedom from worldly desires, by contemplating a body that doesn’t carry any burdens.
Dairo explains: “It is a non perfect representation of the human shape. The top skin or layer has been peeled back to reveal the body as pure muscle and flesh. However, the head is resting back and the eyes closed in surrender to the heavens. A powerful image of a body spirit paradox.”
