WHO WEEPS IN THREADS

Artist : Ron Cruz (@onecruz.art)

The minimalistic style of Asian spiritual art has been influenced by various ecclesiastical sensibilities throughout history. However, if we remove the ornate garbs and elaborate fluffs, it will only reveal its essence at its core. This piece conveys the collective dilemma and the lasting impact of globalization on the discourse of the Asian worldview. The subtle embroidered accents represent the binding threads of the past and present journey of identity building. They highlight how traditional and contemporary belief systems continue to shape conversations on conflicts in the digital age.

Ron Cruz is a multifaceted artist whose work reflects his diverse ethnic background, personal journeys, and academic pursuits. By day, he works a corporate job, but by night, he delves into his creative expression. Influenced by Asian sensibilities and pre-colonial narratives and folklore, his art blends pop-surrealism, line drawing, ukiyo-e, and figurative expressionism elements with dream-like and disorienting undertones. Through his works, he aims to transport viewers to otherworldly realms where reality merges with imagination. Challenging perceptions, evoking emotions, and inviting viewers to a “face-to-face” experience of introspection and discovery.
