My picture bear my own sign: they show the multiplicity and fragmentariness of the Ego, in a process of splitting of the personality.
The theme of identity is the main one: the human machine (body / mind) and the real essential self (soul). We imagine that we are one "I", but in reality we are many different "I's". Considering ourselves as one is the biggest mistake we make: it is a great illusion. We are actually divided into hundreds of different "I's". From here come all the phobias of our mind, first of all the fear of death and the awareness of the passing of time.
