I don’t want to travel to the future to see the flying cars, self-replicating pizza, or sex robots…no, I want to go to see the society that has forgotten tribalism, ancient fairy tales, and the entire notion of “us vs them”.
Mister Jablow’s art is the best type of provocative. It forces one to reconsider preconceived notions, mostly about morality and cultural norms.
My favorite example of his work is:
Innocuous enough, until he takes it in a wondrously detailed direction:
Whether his work is a commentary on society, or simply a jab at things commonly thought of as banal, it serves the viewer a helping of introspection, and in doing so pointedly wets one’s appetite for more.
These absolutely surreal, yet realistic, sculptures are the reason I love art. Please visit Choi Xooang’s website, and/or make the time to see one of his exhibits.
It seems the simplest forms of expression tend to be the most powerful.
