“Who am I? Are these your expectations, or are these mine?”


In his recent works Twan Lugten explores a persona that suffers from pressure of conspiring societal forces that tell him to become something. The thoughts he has and the actions he undertakes seem forced and unauthentic. A deadlock follows.


Staring eyes appear in a dark corner. They draw him in, like will-o-wisps do. Pieces of action figures, movie posters, box art, science fiction fantasies and portable media devices begin to infect him here. They move from blood to surface. Old layers shed off.
