There lies a saying that Time’s arrow stops for no one, life moves past us before we even take notice. Often, we couldn’t help but look back at the moments and places that no longer exist in the present, seeing them only through the memory banks of our minds. Remnants of what was once there thrives in our familiarity of them, and in the midst of going about our daily routines we find reality blurring as we question our sudden loss of consciousness. We daydream or find ourselves experiencing déjà vu, surrendering to the call of inviting the feelings of the past to the present.
For his 4th Solo Exhibition, Jep Dizon takes inspiration in this familiarity and desire to reconnect with what has gone by, exploring the boundaries of his thoughts through a series of narratives that travel beyond time itself. “Retrospective: Reverie” showcases the artist’s vision in introspective portraits; each subject draped in his signature fabrics and poised stoically in their own space, lost in their own reveries.
