The figures expressed in both mediums are variations of the same basic motif, which is characterized by an ambiguous combination of anthropomorphic and zoomorphic traits. Lizard forms have been depicted upon every continent on earth since Neolithic times. Obviously we note their symbolic necessity without quite understanding the meaning. This symbol has emerged in the artist’s life as a series of synchronicities over the past four years in seemingly unrelated occasions, crossing into various mediums such as ceramics, graphics, textiles and video without ever revealing its explicit meaning. Through an exercise of poetic transfiguration, T. Kastelic gives life to a complex body of work which explores the nature of duality: the balanced interaction between completion and forces of regeneration.
