EUDAEMONIA is an Ancient Greek term which denotes a state of well being, a balanced physical and mental space where human needs and expectations are fulfilled, allowing inner joy and wellness to flourish. The word itself means “Good” and “Spirit” and it indicates the cultivation of certain good qualities or virtues needed for Spirit to prosper into a more meaningful and blissful life. Vicissitudes are the difficulties that we normally encounter on our everyday attempts to find meaning, a consideration in how the limitations of our contemporary materialistic society fails to deliver higher states of consciousness and purposeful existence.
EUDAEMONIA & it’s Vicissitudes Is presented like a libretto for an opera, an staged play in 3 parts with magnetic characters who confronting the viewer could hopefully lead him or her to look into their personal circumstances and inner space. A total of 35 paintings, showed in two venues, Gallery 333 and Taipei Solo will completes this body of work

1989 born in Japan. After graduating from Musashino Art University in 2014, Aki worked in Tokyo, mainly making screen prints. 2016 was a turning point, as Aki’s artistic practice shifted after he moved from Tokyo to New York, focusing more on oil painting. He believed that acrylic paint and spray paint would be the main medium of American culture and art, so he began to use oil as a medium to forge his creative path against the current. Soon after, he began creating works such as the “Neo-Cubism” series, which combined the art of the Pink Panther with Picasso, and the “Subway” series, which depicted animated characters in the New York subway system. In this way, he has been collaging ready-made patterns with familiar objects and places from his everyday life.
Apple founder Steve Jobs famously said: “You can’t connect the dots in advance, only when you look back to the present day in the future will you understand how the dots fit together. So you have to believe now that the bits and pieces that are happening in the present, will somehow be connected in the future.”
Talking about the uniqueness of things being unexpectedly connected or combined. In his painting practice, he has a keen interest in finding these dots and connecting them together in unforeseen and absurd ways. He is excited about his potential for storytelling in his work when the connection of points is often inconsistent or disturbed. For example, Japan’s MAD (animated music video), can edit and rearrange scenes from movies and animations on most video streaming platforms to create new unpredictable stories and endings that are far removed from their original setting. He was drawn to these unexpected forms and used them as inspiration to start his paintings.
Jorge Rivera is a Spanish born artist, he spent his formative years in London where he received his MA and Ph.D. in Fine Arts/ Sculpture from the prestigious Royal College of Art. Since then he has been granted with many awards and residencies which lead him to live in other major towns such as Los Angeles, Tokyo, Berlin or Vienna. His work has been internationally recognised and showed in leading contemporary galleries, museums and Art fairs being auctioned by Sotheby’s and taking part in relevant private and public collections. Throughout his life Jorge has worked in a variety of medias and materials, ranging from casting bronze, carving marble, printing on inflatable vinyls and plastics, film, performance, drawing and painting. He has used these diversity of materials and methods as a way to explore, reflect on and share his relationship with the different contexts and cultures he has lived on.
Throughout these experiences he has developed a personal sensitivity and form of perception, that of a contemplative observer who sees Art making as a two-folded inward journey which forms and is itself formed by outward everyday experience. Jorge’s practice is rooted in self-reflection, an act of self/discovery where different layers of subjectivity unveil themselves within the process. With his work he constantly strives to encounter moments of total connectivity with the materials, meaningful moments charged with deep emotion. Unsustainable brief gestures experienced as suspended fragments of time which are somehow miss-perceived or perhaps truly perceived as eternal.
