An image viewed through the filter of a body of water, distorted but not yet fully abstract, close yet unattainable when it seems to be in reach, liquid and changeable: this is the nature of the Métamorphoses series, whose title encloses those distances, not only in form but also perceptions, that are the foundations of the artist’s work. The person is always portrayed in his or her individuality and with spontaneous gestures, but never appears as part of a group or in relation to other people. Using the Expressionistic technique, Anton F. distorts figures to extremes. The bodies are enormous, out of focus, lost in a space in which all emotions are on display. Protecting one’s identity, called into question by today’s increasingly frenetic society, becomes the central theme of the series; the spontaneity and freshness of the images immediately give us views and moments of life, showing us what we can see around us and in human nature. The shots are pictorial and can be juxtaposed with the work of artists such as Ingres, Van Gogh, Degas, Picasso, Bacon and all those who can offer us insight into the deepest nature of life.
