Oil on canvas

61 x 91 cm (24 x 36 in)

Quick Overview

The glorified is juxtaposed with the mundane as their two contrasting images are spliced together into a single composition. Devoid of their personage, with faces intentionally hidden, they are not individuals, yet representative figures of a concept beyond themselves. Celebrated for his masterful conceptualism, Ronald Ventura is not one to ever shy away from tenacious discourse, finding ways to visually compose imagery that hold unapologetically powerful statements hidden behind their cerebral accord. This particular piece also holds an unexpected intimacy within it, as the person fitted into the canvas is articulated in such personal detail in its portrayal, that it leads one to think of the personal connection the artist may hold to the image. Nevertheless, stripped of its face, the person becomes both less and more, and finally a conduit of meaning when amalgamated with the marbled god.
