The abstract in its pure form.. The abstract in its pure form. A flag in the colors of fear, black, red and purple. Figures that try to emerge, signs that are formed to indicate a sort of blocked thought. Of ideas that find no space. Geometric elements that attempt to give personality to a vision, where the black and red color predominate in an agonizing way.
It is a series of collages in which the artist, inspired by elements of daily life, wants to denounce how we all feel on an island, lost in an immense sea of images, sounds and messages. A world where, paradoxically, although there are social networks that embrace the whole world, the world feels increasingly isolated, where sometimes frenetic communication hides situations of abandonment or profound discomfort.
Here this series wants to tell controversial aspects of the same reality and does it through the eyes of Giovanni Crisostomo, who as a contemporary artist, but with a modern artistic training, lives this era of human civilization.
