Demiurge: The Divine Creator in Art and Philosophy


The Demiurge (Greek δημιουργός dēmiourgós) - in ancient philosophy and religions, a divine being creating the material world.


At the beginning of my artistic career, when I was creating my first artistic visions, during one of the exhibitions, I showed a semi-naked woman stretched out on a cross made of a male silhouette. My work, in XXL format, clearly referred to Christian religious representations. Then, a journalist from an art magazine asked me if I felt like a Demiurge, touching the sacrum in a way that, according to him, was subversive.

As a twenty-year-old, I was not able to answer such a question, but it inspired me to search and delve into the mystery of creation. I immersed myself in the philosophy of the Platonic Demiurge, ordering Chaos, suspended between the contemplation of the world of ideas and entanglement in the world of matter. I observed his transformation in the early stages of Christianity, where he lost his position, becoming a god of a lower category, to finally, as a mature religion, put him at the head of the spirits of evil and demons, equating him with Lucifer.

Returning to my personal art, I return to that question and those searches. I return to chaos and shaping order, to the clashes of spirit with matter. Without resolutions, I delve into chaos again to try to introduce even a bit of ideas into the world of matter.

Here are my preparations and first sketches for a cycle based on my 'unHolly' cycle. The first three works, the smallest in the cycle, each measuring 100x100 centimetres, will make up a triptych with a total dimension of 120 x 300 cm.

For now, like the Demiurge, I feel buried in chaos, but the light of the first stars appears in my cosmos.

Is the artist a Demiurge? Are divine qualities the share of the Artist? Answer this question for yourself.
