Exhibition

Stagnant

Exhibiting Artists: Fernando Escora

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 15 Mar 2011 - 27 Mar 2011

Stagnant tells a narrative about the artist’s socio-political environment where every day is a new struggle.  Each work has its own story to tell.   The deconstructed faces and repeated objects signify the odious system that his society has learned to live with.

Despite the hope that the new administration gives, the artist still sees a stagnant society where everything is not changing.  It is the same stories heard, the same people with power, and the same process of corruption.  Worse still, all promises of a better life are lost in their words.

The artist wishes that the younger generation will wake up and help change the stagnant society in which they live.  He gives the viewer their own personal freedom to interprete what they see.
