Everything You Remember
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
For the initial exhibition of the 2018-2019 season Blank Check presents a new body of lens based work by Anthony Flores, Saturday October 13th 2018. This body of work explores themes of identity, awareness, spirituality, and existentialism. The use of vivid color, unique locations, and representation of generated identities work to isolate the distinct qualities of these temporal moments.
“In allowing oneself to become physically immersed and mentally present in sound and color, individuals open themselves up to the possibility of transcendance. Through this project, I endeavour to emphasize the emotional currency of images and their transformative qualities.
In the LGBTQ+ community , I feel that I have entered the world of chosen families through nightlife culture. At night the possibilities are endless; there is no need to worry about the difficulties of the day. We are able to be the people that we create – those that dwell inside of us waiting to get out.”
