Leandro Flaherty–The Longest Night

November 20, 2011

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”

I believe there is no better way to understand nature than to recreate it. My art is a humble attempt at studying the rules which govern us and those that go unnoticed within our everyday routines. The result is a modular language, like a Food-Web, intertwining personal imagery and universal laws. I use nature as a metaphor to better understand our complex realities and introspectively ourselves. My subject matter ranges from the explosive growth of transnational corporations and their effects on coral growth, to subvertising, to an intimate encounter in the wild with a struggling fox.
