“The show we deliver is titled Cherished Implications, not a direct quote from the corollary of us being enmeshed, absorbed, identified, labeled, and hopefully critical method. An excerpt from Flores precedes this text and reads thus:
Her sensitivity to humanistic philosophy, materialist critique, and the history of art strongly places her at an angle of vision to enable her to discern the nodes of context and the elucidation of emergence. Forms, therefore, are rooted and yet released, relativized, and yet distinguished, cherished, and yet implicated.
The act of cherishing and at once being implicated, apropos to the times, infects the creative modus of both Miel and myself, as we extrude images close to our inner gearwork, cherished, attended to, focused, tabled, favored, prioritized with the corollary of us being enmeshed, absorbed, identified, labeled, and hopefully remembered, if only through works, visualizations of this societal sludge which we, like most everyone else, are tenaciously parsing.” – an excerpt from Parsing the Present Sludgeby Jose Tence Ruiz
