1 min read

The easy definition of mythos reads “a set of beliefs or assumptions about one thing.” An artist often begins right here, and tries to increase their very own mythos or shatter all premonitions of what their mythos is. That’s the greatest a part of an ideal artwork present: a private fact and generally the contradictions inside that exploration. David Heo is about to open Mythos at Hashimoto Contemporary in NYC, showcasing his “idiosyncratic use of blended mediums, recurring symbols, and private themes. Borrowing acquainted figures from Nineteen Nineties widespread tradition, the artist displaces these icons from their context.” Heo is performing a displacement of mythos. 

Because the gallery notes, “The artist illustrates clear visible representations of protagonism and antagonism as discovered biases, which affect and form our aesthetics of what’s thought-about “good” and “evil.” This turns into reified by his image-making and using colour. These two components direct the narrative, primarily based on indicators of the meanings that we’ve got related to these binaries, whether or not consciously or subconsciously. For instance, Priiiiiime (pictured within the gallery), intricately layers a spread of blended mediums — the principle determine is clad in pink, white, and blue. Colour, then, emerges as visible rhetoric to assist articulate the aforementioned energy dynamics. Because the viewer shifts their gaze, a second determine emerges from the shadows — depicted solely by shades of black.”
