Synthetic Dream: Mixed Media by Leo Eguiarte
Paintings on circuit boards that deals mostly with symbolism, spirituality, and energy.
Synthetic Dream is a visual metaphor for the illusionary state we as people are subjected to by our material desires. The work addresses issues of perceived power and its consolidation by a selected minority, the psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural effects of which are visible on both micro and macro levels. Our current sociocultural dynamic is one that encourages continual separation and division within our communities, environments and true selves. As an artist, I feel that it is my responsibility to document my surroundings and to invite commentary that addresses critical issues affecting humanity and our ecosystem. Synthetic Dream is designed to confront these ideas of influence and desire and to empower the viewer to consider alternative choices for the ways in which we interact with and participate in the world, encouraging a constantly evolving perspective and reminding us of a shared existence.
