What is reality? What truly exists? With these fundamental two questions as a point of entry, we can travel to the parallel universe that Roberta Marroquin has conveyed with each image in WILDISH GAMBIT.
Venturing far from logic and reality as we know it, the journey to a distant world is the fundamental narrative in this series of images. A daring juxtaposition of individual elements confined to one space creates physical environments beyond human understanding and challenges our reasoning.
Overturning, reimagining, and reinterpreting the mundane is precisely where Roberta wants to lead us. Each image acts as a bold invitation, daring us to slip into a surreal world, a universe dominated by splendid and luxuriant flora and fauna whose beauty is immutable before human presence.
Children and animals act as the centerpiece and major element in WILDISH GAMBIT.
Their honest and magnetic gaze is so engaging that their line of vision draws the viewer into another dimension. The children’s and animals presence, sometimes august and majestic, at times barely noticeable, interweaves with the image. This solemn ambience pulls us into a surreal world filled with elements which interact with one another in an irrational manner.
We finally arrive at the point where the spectator and the image are deeply and intricately connected. This link between the beholder and the beheld is similar to that between human innocence and curiosity in a magical tale, two interwoven threads inseparable from each other. Each photograph is a tribute to the creative capability of children and our thriving nature.
