Everything is ephemeral and nothing can ever be repeated exactly the same; knowing this, that everything attains a brief but also unique presence in time and space, can enrich perception and appreciation of every moment. In art, as a focused and repetitive action can leave a ‘record’ of the artist’s state of mind in the moment of creating an artwork, it can also reveal the intimate creative process taking place.
This ‘recording’ process through repetition has attained a core role in Kittos' work, as he works in obsessive detail with delicate or vulnerable media, whose frailty enhances the sense of the ephemeral. Furthermore, the creative process is meditative, sometimes painful or masochistic even, but always meditative, experiencing the moment of creation as fully as possible. Such way of working has become over the years an essential tool to shape time and space with sound and image, inviting the viewer or listener to a mindful world that has been created intuitively and organically.
