The Southeast Asia region is enriched with a diversity of cultures, and its kaleidoscopic nature is reflected through the creative imaginations of Ronald Ventura and Geraldine Javier, two prominent artists from the area. Qiu Xiaofei and Jia Aili from China share the same approach to understand this complicated reality. Complexity and diversity has become a global phenomenon. The society we live in today is woven together with diverse cultural elements that are ever changing and multiplying. Moreover, reality is composed of a myriad assorted memories and everyday experience is packed with information, leading to a fracturing of the mind. The four artists featured here present art in the age of this simulacrum, where the representation precedes reality, rather than imitating it. They create a montage of our reality by combining fragments of reality, breaking the boundary between the real and unreal. Their paintings represent our psychological status, as we are emotionally and physically overwhelmed by radical changes in every aspect of society.
