Box 13 ArtSpace presents Peter Broz & Kevin Lopez: "Inward/Outward" opening reception
Often, human perceptions of their own reality contrasts with the observable reality. Interpretations of these perceptions, as well, often differ among humans, creating a disconnect between their realities. This selection of paintings and drawings depicts the conversations held between people, themselves, and their environments.
Each human experiences the struggle of finding their own identity. Who are they meant to be? What is their truth? The difficulty in finding one’s self is such an enormous and never-ending task. Considering this challenge of finding the self, is it possible to truly identify another person? Kevin’s work speaks to the internal and local interactions of human perceptions as well as the multiplicity and ambiguity within every individual through explorations of the human figure from various positions and perspectives. Which figure is the true self? Are they all? Are there any?
Through the use of the human forms intertwined with natural elements as well as man-made objects, Peter’s work looks at the relationship and significance between humans and nature, examining how nature impacts humans on an individual level as well as our impacts on the environment.
"Inward/Outward" explores the latent but meaningful interactions between humans, their worlds, and their own internal identities and sensibilities.
