Consumerism and the dragon. Certainly China emerges from this collage. The scenic effect of the many empty fruit and vegetable boxes that are accumulated, contrasts with a dragon that emerges and creeps into a red sea. China is the giant of our time, the island par excellence. A large population that needs so many resources that the only land on which it lives is not able to satisfy. The dragon also encircles a wind turbine and on the base a sort of flames that burn, as a sign of energy that despite being clean cannot satisfy the needs of such an immense territory.
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.
