Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In this artwork, a framed canvas painting showing a mountain landscape is embellished with the addition of shoulder straps and a set of utilitarian mountaineering paraphernalia: three meters of rope on one side, a "Nike" water bottle on the other, and a professional-grade carabiner hanging from the bottom.

Titled "The Climber", the painting was first purchased through a local frame-making shop also known for selling low-cost reproductions of traditional south-east Asian art. Later on, a local leather craftsman helped me in the fabrication and assembly of the different parts I designed to turn this painting into a piece of wearable art.

The subject of the painting itself inspired the concept behind the artwork.

Heavily underlined by the artworks' vanishing point, the top of the mountain becomes an unmissable feature of this landscape one is forced to ponder upon. Obstructed and delimited by the incorporation of a large lake, the travel distance between the spectator and the highest point of this peak inspired every aspect of this "fashion painting."

"Is a fashion painting a painting that you can wear?" This was the fourth answer to the question "What is a fashion painting?", the creative brief I assigned to myself for Vogue Singapore's March "Creativity" issue.

Artist Profile

Born: 1989

Hometown: Caracas

Based in: Singapore

Having worked in the creative industry for a decade, Eduardo Enrique had his first foray into the visual arts when he was propelled by a strong urge to produce artworks as a form of social commentary. Drawing from his background as a Creative Director where he motivates his clients to understand the underpinnings of culture and its societal impacts, his artistic praxis similarly calls attention to the nuances that pop culture can have on the human psyche.

The artist explicitly denies talking about his nationality, as he maintains that one should not be judged based on their geographical origin. To that end, Eduardo looks towards elucidating universal human conditions as he believes that there are intrinsic qualities that connect us beyond borders and boundaries.
