U.S.: LEO EGUIARTE: PAINTING
Leo Eguiarte is a Los Angeles-based artist who creates mixed media art on circuit board. He offered a statement on the series above: “Synthetic Dream is a body of work that symbolizes pending issues affecting humanity’s role in our current living environment. At the moment many individuals are waking up and noticing how our collective decisions are depleting resources from the natural world. The Universe manifests abundance, but our society has taught us otherwise through capitalism, social and religious institutions. The collective social consciousness is continuously becoming one of personal needs and gain while undermining, ravaging and destroying ecologies. Western ideals and way of life are separating us humans from the natural balance that our ancestors maintained with all living beings and the planet. Control is the biggest underlining theme in my current work, because we can either live free in harmony with all living beings or continue our current path as free-range slaves. People ultimately want what is best for themselves and this ultimate desire can lead us to make better decisions for ourselves and future generations.”
