Bart Ramakers (°1963) is a Belgian artist. His tableaux are inspired by ancient myths and tales about beauty and power, passion and betrayal, sensuality and brutality, life and death. He colors and comments these classic themes from a 21st century point of view. Sometimes sensual, sometimes fragile, sometimes humoristic, always with a keen eye for aesthetics. When not dwelling through the catacombs of Western Civilisation, he is travelling and picturing the world. http://www.bartramakers.com/

“We don’t store words or the rules that tell us how to manipulate them,” he writes. “We don’t create representations of visual stimuli, store them in a short-term memory buffer, and then transfer the representation into a long-term memory device. We don’t retrieveinformation or images or words from memory registers. Computers do all of these things, but organisms do not.”
