Featuring 'Invasion of Ona' and the works of Ernest Concepcion
The artist's highly illustrative body of works draws from the visual narratives of comics, sci-fi, and fantasy genres, as well as the broader speculative worlds of geek culture, which often spotlight conflicting forces in intense, heightened conditions, and our personal and existential relationship with the unknown. Geek-culture media and artforms, which spiked alongside the development of technology, continue to expand in our increasingly digital world, yet they remain overlooked in discourses about contemporary art. How do these works interrogate our responses to and attitudes towards an uncertain, discord-ridden world?
