Nathan Cartwright‘s solo exhibition, “Elements”, examines for main alchemical elements (earth, water, fire, and air), and the wrathful titans that rule them all. These titans wreak havoc on little ‘happy faced’ characters the artist calls ‘The Man’: A metaphoric emoji figure – central in his work – that symbolizes people’s inauthentic, non-actualized consciousness. Each element is a metaphor of the self, and the cleansing titans are archetypes of our inner powers and fully activated consciousness.

“As we shed light within, our ignorance (‘The Man’) fades away, and new worlds are created. All in all, my pieces are fun to explore, and made to inspire my viewers to play, delve within, and find inner gold” – Nathan Cartwright

ネイソン・カーライトの個展 [エレメンツ]は錬金術の四大要素(土、水、火、気)を吟味し、激怒した巨人達がそのすべての四大要素を支配しています。これらの巨人達は笑顔の小人達、(ネイソンは”人”と呼んでいます)(比喩的な絵文字が彼の作品の中に常に存在しています) それは人間の自己の未発達、自己の不確立を打ち壊すことを表現しています。 一つ一つの元素は「自身」を比喩しており、浄化している巨人達は私たちの内なる原型の力、活発な意識を表しています。

「私たちが自己を見つめなおすとき、私たちの無知=人は消えうせ、新しい世界が創造されます。概ね私の作品は探究するにあたり楽しめるものとなっており、鑑賞者の遊び心を刺激するように作られています。自身の中を探索し、内なる黄金を発見してください。」ネイソン・カーライト
