The concept revolves around the idea of progression. Likened to the sixteen duotone paintings, the theme focuses on projecting an unseen expansion of the seemingly small subjects. In the contrast of the black and yellow hues, the paradox of being complete in the incompleteness of a work summarizes the idea that subtle interruptions are unfinished stories. These interruptions, moreover, are presented as stories themselves—those that invite the audience to look beyond the frame of the painting for the continuation of the stories.
These duotone paintings are invitations in two colors—a duality that invites the audience to be the authors of what they see in the paintings themselves. In this essence, the audience becomes part of this “progression”—a dynamic and continuous movement of life without interruptions.
The accented “Ó” represents three things: a distinct character in the artist’s signature, the recurring white circle present in most of the artist’s works, and a visual story where the circle is the “progression” and the accent on top of it is the presupposed “interruption” that never did interrupt. The titles given to the artworks are based on the idea of day and night, since the transcendence from day to night is a perfect example of a never-ending progression (exhibit’s theme.) Furthermore, the “Ó” can also visually represent the sun and the moon.
