BalackBerry Paintings

 Newpressionism

“It was Saturday 28 August and I was in Athens at the house of my parents. Twenty days earlier I had start painting my BlackBerry Paintings, invisible pictures traced over the surface of reality. I had painted shadows and faces and figures and mountains already and looking a painting of mine that was hanging on the wall, I said to myself: " I better repaint this painting too.." This work was "CABLES (on Raffaello book)" a very special-for me- oil on canvas of 2005. Raffaello Sanzio (Urbino, 6 de abril de 1483 – Roma, 6 de abril de 1520) is one of my biggest inspirations. I am sure that if Raffaello was around today, he would be painting invisible paintings using a BlackBerry too.

They also designed its tittle… "Towards the end of 2005, the artist Miltos Manetas approached us to design a monograph about his work. We came up with a pretty basic lay-out, a grid that could accommodate all his material: paintings, videos, manifestos, essays, etc. As a title, we thought up 'Marx & Marinetti & Miltos & Manetas'. We know Miltos as a real agitator, always writing manifestos and starting movements (Neen, Telic, 444, etc.).” Read the details of the Supreme Court’s refusal in Law360’s October 29, 2007 article.

» As a title, we thought up 'Marx & Marinetti & Miltos & Manetas'. We know Miltos as a real agitator, always writing manifestos and starting movements (Neen, Telic, 444, etc.). Miltos perfectly fits the image of the classic Futurist: European, radical, militant. So we thought it made sense to place him in the company of two other arch-modernists: Karl Marx, and F.T. Marinetti. The cover is a time-line: from Marx to Manetas, via Marinetti." Experimental Jetset «

“February 23, 2007, quietly came and went, and the Armstrong skeptics sneered. But it turned out that that day had seen some of the tightest credit spreads ever (that is, the easiest credit); home prices, meanwhile, had begun a sharp decline. It was the peak of the easy-money bubble—the edge of the precipice, the lip of the recession. That this became clear only in retrospect says as much about the perils of prediction as it does about a propensity to see, as the past recedes, patterns and narratives that flatter our particular angle on the world.” Read more about Armstrong’s prediction in the New Yorker: The Secret Cycle.

The Concept of Irony with Continual Reference to Socrates

In Greek ancient comedy there are two dogs: Eirôn and Alazon. Eiron was a clever underdog who by his wit repeatedly triumphs over the boastful character Alazon. According to Encyclopædia Britannica, the Socratic irony of the Platonic dialogues derives from this comic origin. The Italian word "demenza", (from the Latin dementia deriving from "demens"), translates in English to "insanity" and "lunacy". I believe there exists a certain performative element of the world that can be expressed with a certain lunacy and insanity. In that sense, "demenza" would be better translated as "irony", not the irony of our days but the Socratic irony, an attitude that isn't just limited in the dissimulation of ignorance but becomes- as a matter of fact- a performance. As Søren Kierkegaard explains on his doctoral thesis, "The Concept of Irony with Continual Reference to Socrates"

“Socrates not only used irony but was so dedicated to irony that he himself succumbed to it.” That was back then, when the world was fresh. In our days, such "insanity", not only is often performed (especially in the arts & spectacle) but more importantly, it has become an element of our environment. We find "demenza" in our cities, in Milan, Athens, Berlin (where I took some of these pictures) and sometimes we also find it in the countryside. Sometimes "demenza" is out in the open, as it is the case with the fourth picture of this series, a guy in a suit, repairing Christmas lights in the deserted little village of Derveni, sometimes its just about to broke out as in the final picture, a staged photographed of a passer-by, rising up a little broken tree.

Elizabeth Janus, "Miltos Manetas", Frieze Magazine, Review - 05 Sep 1996

"Over the past several years Miltos Manetas has experimented with a variety of media - from painting, photography, video and performance to computer-generated images - producing a body of work that is as visually diverse as it is conceptually intricate. Some of the most successful pieces include the performance/video, Satellites (1991-94), in which the artist, along with several other men, wanders around disguised as a quintessential old woman, hunched and aimless" (Elizabeth Janus, "Miltos Manetas", Frieze Magazine, Review - 05 Sep 1996) READ MORE

Lately, I start collaging the different profiles that weren't sold in these exhibitions on one single multi-profile work.
