Emil Alzamora “Soft Pioneers”
KRAUSE GALLERY is pleased to present Emil Alzamora’s second solo exhibition. In his most recent body of work Alzamora explores a fragment of a possible future. Inspired largely by his observations of technology, social media and diminishing solitude, “Soft Pioneers” delves into the murky waters of the digital realm and its effect on the human conscience. As the title of the exhibition implies, the unchartered territories of the future are those of the mind and spirit and of a digital immersion that is shaping them. The nine new sculptures and installations, exquisitely sculpted by hand in obdurate materials such as gypsum and resin as well as an exploration into 3D printing and CNC milling technologies, provide a tactile glimpse into the ruminations and predictions of the artist’s both hopeful and alarming vision of humanity.
