Spider enters cubist phase

SANTA FE, NM – A spider known only by the name Filipe has sworn off the traditional methods of spinning webs, and is presently experimenting with Cubism.

The early-20th-century art movement is relatively new to the Orb Weaver spider, who at only a few months old is already approaching middle age. Filipe had participated in some medical experiments wherein he was given various substances to see how it affected his web-weaving patterns.

“It changed me,” said Filipe. “I saw that simply spinning the same web in spirals was futile. I had to try something new.”

Filipe’s earlier work was influenced by the existential unreality of the zeitgeist, and the occasional necessity to catch flies.

Filipe’s early attempts at art touched on absurdism, similar to the webs he had spun while on caffeine, amphetamines, and several hallucinogens. Cubism reflects his current desire to “bring some order to the relationship between consumerist fetishism and copycat violence.”

“As temporal derivatives become distorted through emergent and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a tribute to the darkness of our era,” said Filipe, who wants to branch out into mixed media before he dies some time in the fall, or is eaten by a bird.
