In expressing the unspeakables, how ready are the artists ready to do it and how far are they prepared to go?
We've been conditioned by our society not to cross boundaries without facing the consequences. This situation is as real as it can get. And the stratagem is to avoid, at all costs, making known the unspeakables, except to a bare stone wall.
Hide or distort our innermost feelings and covert intentions for fear of being judged, ridiculed, or made culpable by others.
Once given the opportunity to reveal our true intentions, do we coil from it? When challenged by the limitations of our practiced media, do we choose to come to our aid with the written word? The surrender of craftsmanship to the articulation of clever ideas.
“My painting is based on the fact that only what can be seen there is there. It really is an object.” －Frank Stella, Abstract Expressionist
This harks back to the times when no footnotes were needed and truths are in the pictorial fact.
－Benny Chia, Founder & Director of The Fringe Club
