“Full/Part Time Job” | Kris Soguilon
In his recent exhibition entitled Full/Part Time Job, Kris Soguilon’s visual language though pencil and gesso on canvas are from the various people he encountered in the multi-racial community of England. The image drawn to each canvas conveys the universal reason of busy people to face life as it comes and makes a living. Each image has their own ironic fascinating character from a saint whose second vocation is singing, a self professed movie star, a materialistic bag lady, and a religious pagan, a man celebrating his femininity, an unclothed feminist against nudity, a soft hearted predator, a career driven wonderer and many more.
“I have no intentions of creating a story of all the characters in my works as one. Each drawing is not interrelated with each other and should perceive individually. I am convinced that we are existentially different but has a communal goal that is to get by and hopefully survive life’s kind disappointments for the day.” remarks Soguilon.
