Uki artists showcased on world stage
Two Uki artists have had their revolutionary work showcased in Rome and Moscow.
Professor Robert Pope and Robert Todonai’s paintings and theories, inspired by Salvador Dali, have been displayed together.
Professor Pope said the work stemmed form the “virus-like” impact of an overly digitised modern world.
“Modern communication devices are known to be spreading a dysfunctional virus-like 3D epidemic,” Prof Pope.
“Salvador Dali was convinced that his paintings contained a 3D message about human survival, but until now this could not be proven.”
The works were on display in Russia’s famous Palace of the Artists.
The duo began building their Science-Art research centre, Castle on the Hill near Uki, in 1990.
Pope was awarded a Gold Medal Laureate in 2009 and both he and Todonai are represented in the Park West Gallery in the USA.
He said information devices were over-filtering emotional human interactions and hoped their work could help to address this.
“They lack emotion and people are becoming… to have a pretty emotionless existence,” he said.
