Tremendous promise of hope in this new Crash exhibit, the artist demonstrates once more that we have to move forward, to excel ourselves.

Behind the vivid force and colors of this new painting series, superheroes totally symbolize the vital energy essential for overcoming the different afflictions of our path, the violence of the world and civilization nowadays, as well as our inner violence.

Our universe turns toxic, dangerous, coming straight from science-fiction movies, in which our everyday life can turn horrific at any time. Chances are great that the unreal turns real, little by little, that the unlikely becomes likely.
Are we that far-off from George Orwell's anticipation novel "1984", published in 1949?

What seemed unimaginable is looming insidiously. What world do we want to be heading for? Shall we have to tear everything down to start from a clean slate?

Well no, that isn't our claim, and Crash proves it by making us realize that we can react quickly, that we have to preserve and protect what we are responsible of, that we can heal, fix, build with a great respect for ourselves, our circles, our planet.

Crash provides the fundamental codification; besides determination, we need this supernatural power to be back on an even keel, thus avoiding a dramatic outcome. Crash alerts us and makes us wonder, through this iconography coming straight from American comics; they reflect the will we should have to protect, love and transcend.

Those characters are the imaginary heroes of our early years, we can see through their playful aspect the echo of messages and patterns we could put into practice. Crash drives us into a positive energy thinking that we have to develop in sake and respect of everything surrounding us. This energy is meant to serve, not to destroy.
We all know that and, in our own way, we're all superheroes.
