AAPPR / SR-EM # 030 - Calin Dover Tarrats

Calin Dover Tarrats (b.1969 Bronx, New York) is a multidisciplinary artist who focuses on the studies of sociology, physics, and social problems. Using abstract organic or circular images, he makes prints, paintings, installations, and sounds that investigate space as a reflection of the multiplicity of dimensions. A creative spark that transforms an abstraction into figuration, the forms are transformed into "creatures" or enigmatic maps reflecting existing realities independently of ourselves. His work urges a reconsideration of the obvious that also brings the banal and everyday life into an altered focus. He is constantly studying the conditions of social-events in terms of how they affect us as individuals, or as a society, and how we react to these issues based on Abraham Maslow’s theory, and his analysis of human needs.
