The concept of this exhibit is to explore the conversation of what remains after the passage of time, the exposure to the elements, and the nature of man.
A solo exhibit by Gabriel Isaiah Gonzales of constructed male and female torsos. These are then de-constructed through a series of elaborate steps of water and fire. Through the eye of a cinematic lens, this process is documented on film and presented as part of the work.
