Colin Christian is a seminal figure and influence in the POP SURREALISM movement of today’s artists. He cites his primary influences as the 1968 French – Italian Roger Vadim film “Barbarella” with Jane Fonda, 1960-70’s design, and Science Fiction and Avant Garde Fashion.

TRYPOPHOBIA is from the greek τρύπα, “hole” and φόβος, “fear”, the pathological fear of objects with irregular patterns of holes. Seminal investigation of trypophobia, a biological revulsion rather than a learned cultural fear, reveals that a primitive portion of the brain associates the shapes with something dangerous. Clustered holes made individuals state that they felt that their skin is crawling, shudder, feel itchy, experience panic attacks, sweat, palpitate and feel physically sick. The reaction behind the phobia is an unconscious reflex reaction, an involuntary and nearly instantaneous movement in response to a stimulus.

In terms of existential symbolism, a hole is a package of nothing, a conspicuous manifestation of non-existence surrounded by existence, the physical occurrence of the two most fundamental metaphysical categories side by side. As such, it raises the ultimate question: Why is there anything at all rather than nothing?
