Fabricate by Dean West
“I must have a body: it is a moral necessity, an ‘obligation’. And, first of all, I have a body because there is something dark in me.” – G. W. Leibniz
Normally we’re always drawn to light and bright pictures, but Dean West‘s work is too amazing not to notice. He harmoniously connects beings and spaces of an imaginary dimension, with semblants, languid creatures, charmant and dark. Leibniz asserted that the soul was an obscure and inner process, inaccessible, but this dark nature required a body, a surface, a mask.West’ work perfectly places in the Leibniz’ thoughts, because of the effort to join the inside with the surface.
