Unlike the repetition of the stories already told or the series of finished realisms of the existing machinery of art, the work that Justin Earl Grant exhibits with the title of "Zeugma" seeks to maintain the surprise, a contingency that results from the encounter with his production.

Discomfort is the starting point towards the search. Human figures are insinuate, but they are only incomplete strokes where one could identify in a flow with other elements also unfinished.Between rejection and attraction, between opacities and brightness, in desolate landscapes or invented astronomies, it impels us to invent stories, to imagine places, to unleash emotions. What it projects is light of a lack, of what it is not there, of what it is insinuated, of what it is missing. The lack generates desire. It leaves us desirous, restless, seekers.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until December 18.
