Chichimonster Holds Solo Exhibit at A SPACE!
Artist Archie Geotina a.k.a. Chichimonster curates a solo exhibit!
Collective 88 in cooperation with Status Magazine invited visual artist Archie Geotina, more popularly known as Chichimonster, to showcase a solo exhibit entitled ‘Alpha Omega A.D.D.’ at the A SPACE _Gallery!
In contrast to his previous work based on social and political commentary, this show takes an introspective look at the artist’s personal and professional struggles.
For the first time in his art, he exhibits these vulnerabilities to ask, “Do you know what it feels like to have the sky fall upon you? To get lost and beat up, burned out, burned up, to be found through heartache knowing you were drawn in?”
He explores the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, of these several encounters, while illustrating the range of emotions- depression, addiction, suicide, fear, hope, and love- in between.
He re-explores these memories to further understand and ask, “What does it take for a person to be where they are today?” Through his own experience, he questions the existentialist aspect of being and considers the human to be its own God. Therefore, in control of his own destiny.
Its own God… but – with Attention Deficit Disorder.
