A massive system is a collection of different smaller components, and more often these pieces are also systems within themselves that were made to be operated by more minute elements. With this, we may determine that however diminutive an element within the entirety of the whole, it’s actuality is of the same importance as the other larger parts.
The exhibition “Splinters” showcases works created by various artists unique from each of their practices. Each work has its own identity, generated by every artist’s personal method, styles, choices of imagery, form, and perspectives. Some of the pieces took soul from the culture of the streets, using abstraction of letters as symbols to convey thoughts, even merging artisanal craftsmanship to graffiti elements to form a new. While sequences of different figures distinctly rendered from each other cohesively forms new metaphors in some of the works. Although the exhibition serves as a platform for unified ideas, each work reflects induvial identities rooting from personal observations and experiences. Each piece is part of the whole, similar to a splinter tattered from a larger block of wood. Not just a part of this specific exhibition, but a part of each artist’s consciousness as they venture towards their artistic pursuit.
