“CAPTURE THE FLAG!”  Is an ongoing series we unveiled in May, 2013.  The first body of work introducing this vision was titled “CAPTURE THE FLAG: THE DOMESTICATION OF ALL THINGS!” and opened in Hong Kong at the “Work In Progress” show. The second installment was a solo show in Lisbon, Portugal that opened in July 2013, titled “CAPTURE THE FLAG: CONQUER THE DIVIDE.” The final installment of this series, “CAPTURE THE FLAG: HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEART IS,” is a solo show presented by Above Second Gallery in Hong Kong, which opens on October 24th, 2013.

In “CAPTURE THE FLAG: HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEART IS” we are dissecting the timeless struggle of nations.  In this case we are looking at America through the mythology of the Cowboy and the Indian, a great duality within American history.  The work embodies themes of liberation and inspiration. America itself is a work in progress.  Our work is a reflection of the way we are pushing for a new world, and a society that thrives and feeds off of creativity and forward thinking. Progression through evolution.  More specifically, we are redefining the concept of America and what it is to be an American.  There is no I in the America we know- we spell it AMERYCA, suggesting cooperation over competition.  “CAPTURE THE FLAG: HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEART IS” expresses the idea that life is not about where you’re home was, but where your heart is.

Our vision is to capture moments in history, with the hope that we can shed light on the future. Capture the flag is an opportunity for us to question our place in the world. Capturing the flag is freedom.
