"THE OBJECT OF GORGONA IS FREE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SYMBOLIC MEANING.
GORGONA IS IN FAVOR OF ABSOLUTE TRANSITORINESS IN ART.
GORGONA SEEKS NEITHER WORKS, NOR RESULTS IN ART.
GORGONA IS CONTROVERSIAL.
GORGONA IS DEFINED BY THE SUM OF ITS LIKELY INTERPRETATIONS,
GORGONA'S WORLD IS A VISUAL FIELD.
GORGONA'S THOUGHT IS SERIOUS AND SPARSE.
I'M AFRAID TO SAY IT WAS CONCEIVED IN A NATURAL WAY."
Print on canvas mounted on board.
Edition of 25.
