Costas Picadas' new collection Biomes presents selected works from his two series titled Biomes and Biophilia. Biophilia is a part of Costas Picadas' ongoing exploration of metaphysical textures in the universe.
Drawing inspiration from a biblical passage that suggests breath is what powers all life, in Biophilia the artist interrogates the power and impact of breathing in all matter. The works imitate patterns of human breath that embody a deep dimensional expression.
Through abstract imagery and hand-painted particles, each image offers a distinct breathing pattern. Flickering in between hints of focus and galactic swirls, the works in Biophilia align itself with the process of transformation, tracking energy as it changes metabolisms.
It is a comprehensive body of work that includes building installation, moving images and stills.
