The aim of this exhibition is to present some of the various incentives that motivate artists to produce a work of art. These could be, amongst others, filtering and analysing the information we receive; cultural influences and background; building relationships and observing our social environment; what we find aesthetically pleasing; past experiences, traumas; and many more.
This selection of artworks will also reflect on what leads artists to create a type of language, through their concepts and techniques, in order to express their perspectives, their feelings, and their position on subjects of their interest.
In addition to the above, it would be interesting to observe how sometimes artists can be triggered by the same or similar impulses, but interpret them in different ways, or choose diverse approaches to portray them.
