Through this new series of threaded bodies, Weinachter succeeds in assembling the numerous inspirations that have brought him to life this last few years. From the early works on 1914 “broken faces”, to the blood and nervous vessels in our bodies, and the childhood wounds.

We have with certainty reached maturity where linear stories contrast with overlapping paper. Collages and transparency emphasize all the rhythmic movements, from restrained momentum to indicative flights towards freedom.

Far beyond the realism of portraiture, it is now a very personal, accurate and coded treasure hunt, where the use of primary colours suggests a universal and timeless peculiarity to a living subject never at rest.
