Vortex Escape: A collection of works by Ruben Aguirre Jr. and Jova Durán.
Vortex Escape illustrates an escape path using the mind as a getaway car from intersecting planes, people, and time, visible only through the untamed eye.
My work revolves around unification, clarity, humor, evolution, and the natural desire for all organisms to build. At every new step in progression comes an addition to its being and character. It is nothing complicated, it is common sense to the self. It is a sense of reassurance that you are not perfect, but you are growing. We all connect through growth.
-Ruben Aguirre Jr.
Jova “el grafista” Durán (b. 1984, Chicago) engages in painting on everyday life surfaces, many of which are assembled from salvaged materials. His work manifests itself as a reaction to alienation from the creative act in a culture that outsources the majority of its material production.
