Humans are officially a subspecies of terrestrial animals that live mostly or totally on land, and are classified as intelligent primates by science. In this sense, a life confined to enclosed confines is not one that people are designed to live. Nonetheless, the pandemic of the previous year altered the direction of our evolution, altering every element of human activity, including the creation of “visual, aural, or performative artefacts,” often known as art. The year of quarantines, lockdowns, inside confinement, and social separation focused the painters' focus onto their immediate surroundings, just as the technical limits of art materials impacted the blossoming of interior and still life paintings centuries earlier. The new normal imposed a fresh setup for technical and conceptual exploration by examining the perspectives of their walled-off surroundings, playing with the sunshine rays coming from outside or the illumination from their lightning, experimenting with patterns, objects, and the correlations of existing elements. What appeared to be restrictive circumstances led to some revolutionary notions and visuals, which this show hopes to introduce.
