Maico Camilo, Tapestry of Life 1, 2017. Acrylic on canvas, 175cm x 145cm.  Provenance: The artist.




    Like a flâneur, Camilo often wanders around the city for hours, mostly venturing out at night. Walking the streets, his ideas take form in the subconscious. His creative journey entails an engagement with ambivalence, unplanned elements, emotions and experiences, reflected in the title of Equivocal.

    The artist states:

    The subject matter I work on relates to or have related to my personal or explored life, encompassing our notion of past, present and future life.  My focus evolves around the exploration of human emotions; hence the journey starts from a place of unknown. I usually start with a thought in my head, which instinctively grows from my differing emotions that I am feeling at that time in my life.  Walking the streets, I slowly but surely sense that an idea is germinating as I take in the scene around me.  The sense of a work (or project) eventually crystallises and I can then commence the process of putting the concepts inside my head onto the canvas.

    My work demands us to discover for ourselves what we perceive we are seeing.  My current projects are essentially hiding the obvious within the artwork itself, deliberately diminishing the clarity and then the final step within the artwork is creating a linear view of the world, providing the definition that we are searching for in each piece. In this way I am drawing the viewer into a state of reflection.  The title Equivocal demands the consideration of two perspectives – it is neither exactly one thing or the other, and in this way each artwork is asking us to reflect on the emotional element of the human state (so often we are caught in two minds, or in other words leaving things open to interpretation). So, enjoy the different perspectives and remain open to what you see in each artwork!
