Work on wood by contemporary artist Loris Dogana. Provocative and ironic, Dogana in his works often combines image and text to strongly communicate his message. In this case, the artist portrays an anatomical brain, within which freshly water flows, the brain then becomes a transparent glass goblet. This creates duality with the other work in the series, "Heart of glass", which instead depicts an heart within which clear water flows. Does the artist want to express the connive force of the brain not only as an organ, but as a motor of thoughts and connections as fluid as water? The work is signed by hand by the artist. 

1983 , Italy

Loris Dogana is a cruelly ironic artist and (despise everybody ask him over and over) he’s not a Street Artist. He watched a lot of cartoons during the ‘80s and gave his first kiss in the ’90, and that’s all for his personal trauma. Since that moment, he draws mankind in every single aspect: hopes, fears, and the traps we face every day during the time of our life. In his brutally elegant black and white artworks, he depicts allegories where our habits and social pressure replace our heads, and they reveal what we really are: heavy and thinking objects, bodies and empty puppets, repetitive like mass consumption products. The heroes that Dogana portrays are the losing side of the System, in a melancholic limbo where they can find their redemption through the paradox of the two dimension space of ink on paper. His modus operandi is a surgical dissection of the human soul through the transformation into Pop icons, and Loris Dogana feels this rape our own alibi as an act of Love.
