Event description

Description

Encryption” is an exhibition that authentically captures the essence of people’s diverse identities. In substance, this series of collectible art delicately focuses into how individuals from all walks of life view themselves, in parallel with how others view them. Although both artists, Rei and Filip, are well known for their two distinct styles, their works both share a focus on the fundamental elements of art, as a means to express concepts through the value of the elements themselves. What makes their series of work an intriguing match is their fixed choice of limiting themselves to the artistic element of line work to express their visual concepts. By providing this challenging minimalistic approach into rendering their images, the artists use it in contrast to convey complex visual imagery. Rei and Filip’s use of imagery derives from many culturally diverse sources, as it relates to calligraphy, tribal tattoos, cave drawings, Japanese woodcuts, and modern design. Looking at each piece up close, the work is finely rendered to capture each individual’s unique personality. The series of 20 small to large-scale works showcase the interconnected qualities of an integrated society, as it visually demonstrate this connection by capturing cultural images and traditions, shared amongst a global web of interconnected societies. Although both artists have referenced visually accessible images, to maintain it’s authenticity, each model has been directly contacted in order to gain more context on their unique cultural perspective. Overall, the presentation of dynamic line work offers a captivating visual vernacular which resonates with a diverse audience on both an aesthetic and subconscious level- offering the viewer a sense of global connection, while also demonstrating that this same global connection has always been innate in us since birth.
