Christian Tudose as an alchemist questions trough his photographic images the essence of human nature. He immortalized images of Renaissance flavor which then reconstructs by folding them, thus showing our fragility.
His androgynous like effigies characters, covered in garments and head pieces show us strong expressions. Man, molded from clay, gets the in-print of his environment.
Protected by cellophane, some characters take more the notion of object, of merchandise glam. At a closer look, mirrored in the reflection of the shiny material, indentified with himself, the viewer gets aware of his own being. Away from the outer shell, we are all the same in our human essence.
