Open Secrets by Sam Ebohon

Just like most things in life that are obvious but still perceived as secrets, or shrouded in secrecy. These works though seem to show the subject matter are layered within.

The artist seems to be playing a high-level hide and seek with his known style. The works tease the visual senses, a foreplay of some sort before the subject matter appear. This is not far from a traditional masquerade dance or a mask ball dance where the duality of known and unknown entangle to heighten mysticism and enjoyment. 

Sam Ebohon's stroke are almost feathery yet visceral and strong enough to carry his message in these new body of works.

It's our final show of the year. 

We hope you can make it out!
