Life is as beautiful as it is cruel. Accepting this duality as a fact is quite challenging. Denying it is extremely dangerous. One must have both strength and compassion to survive without being corrupted. One must hold on to their principles tightly to grasp the harsh realities thrown at us by the universe. This rollercoaster ride is not as enchanted as it may seem.
Sola depicts the world as a surreal arcade. A world full of players and games. Some players have more tokens than others. Meanwhile, some play with people’s emotions in numbers. Despite her sweet candy-colored works, she is well aware of all the bitterness life has to offer. She remains unfazed by all these. Her character is as malleable as clay. Her heart is as pure as it gets.
Carl Modelo delves into the emotions an artist feels during the course of one’s art career. His works portray the transformation of an artist’s sentiments. Feelings of uncertainty, doubt, and fiery passion are part of a cycle that the creative mind wrestles with constantly. His works may be adorable at first glance, but upon deeper examination, their facial expressions reflect the struggles and frustrations we all have to deal with repeatedly.
