Proposition Four- Heads Will Roll

2013

 

Heads Will Roll is the fourth and final installment of de Esteban’s challenging and provocative Propositions series—a long-term and rigorous investigation of society’s embracement of technologies, in particular, the dawn of the bio-cybernetic era.

 

To construct Heads Will Roll, de Esteban has mined a mass media that generates an incessant stream of imagery of war, violence, and disasters 24/7 into our homes, offices, public and private spaces. De Esteban merges and juxtaposes images, texts and found objects, to produce photo-montages that present a cacophony of information that is at once dense with information yet visually legible.

 

 

The resulting artworks are stunningly rich, lush in color, and visually beautiful constructions, that at the same time reveal a world where violence, imagined or real, is always looming. The intention of the artist, is for the viewer to be left almost totally out of valance, in a state of anxiety and unease.
