A superhero is often defined by his opposition. We plot out the course of his development as a character through the perils and challenges presented by his or her own set of villains.
Like these heroes, our lives are also defined by the way we meet challenges. We are, in many ways, a product of duality. In this way, everyone creates their own gallery of rogues - and this is the narrative strain we see artist Reybert Ramos chasing in his second one-man show.
This central conceit of hypnagogia, the state between dream and reality, still forms the crux of Ramos’ show at Galerie Stephanie. Appropriately called Rogues Gallery and opening on May 21, the show represents an evolution of sorts - bringing together a renewed vision of the duality of humanity and reinforced by the weight of experience and memory. If we, as heroes in our own reality, are to be defined by the demons in our lives, then what then becomes of our own humanity? This fascinating take on dualism ? of the binary interactions that are so inherent to mankind ? shows just exactly how far Ramos has come in his practice.
