You and the rock, alone. And nothing around you, no one around you, only chaos, only waves, only storm. You cry but nobody can hear as the waves dance around you. You look down and see nothing. And nobody sees you either. You feel that you are not real, that only the waves and the chaos are real. And then you take a decision. You will raise your head and look around. You will look straight at the waves. You will shout at them. You will stand on that miserable rock and you will become an extension of it. You will make that rock into a fortress. You will take all the waves they throw at you, until there are no more left. Until they have used them all so that you can see what lies beyond. And what lies beyond will be a new you. A -you- that shapes its reality with the strength of a rock.
Javier Ideami’s works focus on the contrast between humanity and
the forces that shape nature and the world. The human face and
figure, full of beauty, fragility and courage, face the challenges and
the questions posed by nature and our existence. Ideami’s works
are a celebration of the beauty of human emotion and resilience in
the middle of the neverending storms of life. Ideami’s works express
what makes us human, deep emotional states like hope and
loneliness, and the miracle of our existence written on the courage
and strength of the human spirit, as it raises itself among the
thunder and chaos from which its fragile and fleeting beauty is born.
Being a multidisciplinary artist, Ideami expresses his art through a
combination of skills and fields, including: fine art photography,
digital art, filmmaking, art installations, interactive technology and
