SUGA Art Gallery presents Sailing Through Daydreams opening reception
Sailing Through Daydreams features works from Jose Cordova’s series Sueño De Un Navegante, completed between 2012 and 2013. This series of his work embodies a search for transit and movement, represented by boats and corridors that are in between destinations. Cordova takes us in surreal journeys inspired in child play and their imaginary voyages.
Very relevant to his work are also the “trompos” (tops, a very common toy in Venezuela), some of which are dancing as in representation of time and the passing of events, and some of which are down, in representation of those harder periods of wait and longing for action to begin. In his series “The Navigator of Hope”, symbolism is the most essential part of his work. A message of hope is the reason for his creation.
