“Human-Robot-Slave” in Samara

By Arianna McKinney

Raw black canvas and oil paint. Images of slender stick figures arranged in bar codes on black and white backgrounds. And beneath each painting, the phrase “Human-Robot-Slave.” 

This thought-provoking statement on the human condition characterizes artist Nad Thiry’s latest collection of about 30 paintings, on exhibit until November 17th at Jardin de los Artistas across from the gym in Samara. 

Thiry, originally from France, said she conceived the concept 12 years ago when working in France.  “You want but you don’t know exactly what you want,” she explained, noting how people often are afraid and accept the system, not knowing what real freedom is. “You are just a number,” like a fingerprint, she indicated.

She said the project has two parts. The first is the painting of the slave concept, illustrated on a black-and-white square of the black canvas. In some of the paintings, the background is a hand-painted black-and-white image of Samara Beach. In all of the paintings, the image of the bar code is repeated. “The bar code is the system,” explained Thiry.

The second part of the project is a surprise, Thiry said enigmatically, promising that at the end of the year she is going to activate the bar codes.  


The paintings can be viewed and purchased Thursday through Sunday evenings starting at 3 p.m., or by appointment. For appointments, call 8568-0795 or email [email protected].
