Dan Civa     *     HumanAnimal



Oil paintings and drawings, in realistic style, are reflecting portrait examples og transgenetic manipulation with human beings
and animals. Probably a hypothethical, imaginary development of today but a foreseebele realistic possibility of tomorrow.
These art works are all, more or less, influenced from genetic research, but Dan Civa try, at the same time, 
to go some steps further into a still unpredictable future perspective.  A well-informed acknowledment of consciousness 
by possible things continuation and repression of the impossible matters in life. Also at the same time, 
his mission with such paintings is a warning signal of anziety for power structure of the human race. 
When human, somehow, want to play God, the risk could be fatal for our existence.

Transgenetic manipulation separately by human beings and by animals, and in combination of man and animal,
with plants and food etc. were earlier just "a whim in the course of nature".  Today and in the nearest future
these evolution wishes can be realized genetically. Whatever we like it or not. The inborn need of curiosity
through the human brain there' s only ethical distance to the already started gene theraphy and gene cloning
with everything this brings along for mankind in a fateful future
