"While I regard distortion necessary as a path to a different beauty and truth, I am also enamored of the sensuous volumes of the nude figure. They may be truncated or fragmented or metamorphosed, puzzle-like into the geometry of armor or architecture, but they always express the grandeur of the pose." - Richard Taddei
I identify a great deal with his surreal style. It brings to mind the suffering/indulgence of being fragmented, diffused and divided. It reminds me of times my body and spirit was left rearranged by a lover's hand. I constantly feel scattered and searching, like vapors in the wind. Each day, I amalgamate with the outside world; returning to bed a different incarnation than which I've awakened. His art confirms that this is indeed a beautiful thing.
