From the website:
"A new control emerges in the reverent uniforms of the scorched earth. An unknown static breaches the calm, weaving a subtle gleam into old tradition. The disturbance becomes vestal, augering the age of experience. Innocence is shattered as a new harmony reigns."
In "Exercise", the new geometry & structure of Mr. Doma's silhouette is ignited in fiery saffron tones, echoing the Eastern religious costume of bhagwa.
The tainted hero struggles in a harsh industrial void, as sands sift through his palms to join an inky blackness below.
Hidden demons batter his fragile body, contorting his frame. Instinctually he succumbs to martyrdom; at the ringing of the bells, is reborn as the phoenix.
"Divining a delicate tension, Damir Doma aligns a timeless balance between opposites. The keystones of universal folklore become blurred in the chaos of today. In the eye of the storm, grace is born from instinct."
