Paul Neagu is interested in how people and things connect. He thought a lot about how things can be separate from one another but still connected at the same time – like the areas in the adult brain that deal with different functions. He was interested in these kinds of connections from the smallest, molecular level to the universal. He often constructed his works in a cellular form, meaning that they are made up of lots of individual compartments or units that link together somehow. The cellular construction of his works – such as this one, ‘Ceramic Skull’ – show visually the way we automatically keep things in different compartments in our mind.
