Mens Rea, In criminal law, mens rea -- the Latin term for "guilty mind" -- is usually one of the necessary elements of a crime. The standard common law test of criminal liability is usually expressed in the Latin phrase, actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea, which means that "the act does not make a person guilty unless the mind is also guilty"
Rupture XVI, oil and tempera on hardboard,“Perhaps it is enough to say (…) that loss, death and what deadens are too much with us, and that to feel the painting’s impression on our skin is finally to receive the tactile at the limits of the visual – a triumph for what lives on despite the odds.” (Judith Butler, Response to J.M.Bernstein, pag.62) @saatchiart
RUPTURE XIV, oil and collage on hardboard> This artwork is part of my seris of ‘Ruptures’. Bodies that could be identical with the flow of lines inscribing them. I was looking for a sort of overalness, a devisualisation of colour and de-forming of line.

Saatchi Art Artist Maia S Oprea; Painting, "A Dog's Topography III" #art The third in the series, "A Dog's Topography" describes an instance of the relation between humans and animals, between myself and my dog. There is no void. There is no fullness. But there is a new substance which composes itself and decomposes, being reducible to the inner image, whose form is strictly its realisation. Every time another one. With surrender, with omissions, with economy of forms.#painting #black #dog
