Lugas Syllabus: The Garden of Triumph
Element Art Space presents Lugas Syllabus first showcase at Art Stage Singapore 2016 titled The Garden of Triumph which will open on Thursday, 21 January 2016 at Booth B18, Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
In The Garden of Triumph, consisting of 6 paintings and 1 sculpture (set of 3), Syllabus explores the history of human nature such as struggle for power, wealth, authority, land and even love and how it shapes us today. From the first man- slaughter done by Cain, son of Adam, to his own brother, Abel, to the massacres by the Nazis, we are living in an era where power and wealth control our daily lives and are championed sometimes even above justice.
Syllabus’s works here do not discuss about the pain and sadness that resulted from this obsession. Instead, he is accepting and showing human corruption for what it is. According to him, we are what we do and every individual has the right to get what he or she fights for—a victory that often comes at a price or with big responsibility. The Garden of Triumph is a garden where dreams ascend reality, sadness that brings joy, failures that give results, and where tears and regrets can be considered a victory.
