In this age when political anger convulses from every tweet on the troubled world stage, can we at least find some harmony in the art world where righteous disagreement is not essential for life to go on? Can’t we wet our collective beds and have kitsch on the wall at the same time? Can we retire a conflict of art ideals that’s not particularly worth upholding after all these years? It would seem like an art Gallery might be that place to start to let go of old beefs. That’s usually where we go with the stated intension to relax and enjoy a day or night out anyway, recharge the art batteries and be inspired. So with this little show we hope to encourage by example that all art can live in creative harmony, if it’s simply great art.
“I aim for political reflection, by closely joining the critical and social senses.”
The result: pieces rich in texture, whose color palette are plastic wastes of poor nutrition; individual consequences of globalization and undoubtedly one of the plagues of the 21st century. Within my vision, a future emerges that indicates the bristling conditions between health and mass-production corporations in the global situation, where social innovation and benessere seem to be based on a cosmopolitan approach of the big city, which, despite of having greater civilizational-technological development, continues to suffer basic stresses such as housing, health and human rights. It is well to say that the great chains of junk food and lifestyles of the “big city” that in modern times was understood as an improvement for humanity
