You Are Here Gallery was established in 2011 as a result of a continuous artistic dialogue between artists Luis Enrique Torres and Sharon Eliasi. Though working separately on their individual works over the past 10 years, the artists share a dominant, deep, and personal nuance in their works. Through a new dialogue, the two artists share the seeds of their visual expressions by rendering their vision of personal experience and questions of belonging, as well as borders of these relations as individuals within time and space. Through paintings, photographs, videos and sound tracks, this blogsite lives as virtual gallery for the achievements and understandings of the artist’s dialog.
A man that appears to be lost, confused, bewildered; Disoriented.
He is looking from the outside, inward. He stands adrift in a place with simultaneous ideas, memories and visions from another. He wonders why he feels disconnected yet desires to be a part of something he does not comprehend.
Disoriented is reflection on ideas of belonging and concepts of place. The series presents a personal and intimate view into the artists interpretation of sense of belonging and examination of personal denials.
Disoriented is on view thru January 31st, 2012.
