In this powerful photo series John Baloy invites the audience to dive into a ‘dream-like’ state of mind. By combining references to ancient spirituality and wisdom with a futuristic aesthetic, Baloy brings to life everything one would expect from contemporary african art: vibrance, presence and strength.
The series consists of 6 photographs to represent 3 dream-like-states: wholeness, intuition and infinity.
WHOLENESS The circle being a universal symbol which represents totality, wholeness and timelessness. Feeling enough and complete.
INTUITION The outer lines represent the four corners of the universe whilst the circle in the centre represents the spiritual vision: a connection between self and the universe.
INFINITY The double circle represents the cycle of seasons. Understanding existence not in a timeline but as a cycle: to death and rebirth.
