Flowers For X: Patricia Perez Eustaquio

16 Dec 2016

“At Yavuz, [Patricia Perez Eustaquio] grounded the exhibition by transliterating the symbolism of 17th-century vanitas still-life paintings (voluptuous botanicals, mirrors and skulls, dead game) into contemporary allegories involving mouldering petals, quirky spears and the remains of a butchered goat. And like their medieval precursors, the artist elevates her morbid symbols from temporal physicality to morality taleā€”one that revolves around the modern consumer and how we destroy things in order to use them: What, she asks, becomes of our earthly desires when we exhaust their possibilities utterly?”

Marybeth from ArtAsiaPacific reviews Patricia Perez Eustaquio’s Flowers for X.
