We Cannot Step Twice Into The Same River
26 September - 1 November
We Cannot Step Twice Into The Same River is Elaine Roberto-Navas’ inaugural solo exhibition with FOST Gallery. “We Cannot Step Twice Into The Same River” is the first part of a quote by Greek philosopher Heraclitus in his Doctrine of Flux, explaining why this situation is impossible because the river is ever flowing and the person ever changing. Roberto-Navas’ new paintings are of the same subject matter but here, sky, water and earth are inverted, rendering the landscape almost abstract.
Conceived and produced during the lockdown period in Singapore, the new works are based on fellow artist Mawen Ong’s photographs. The paintings are an expression of Roberto-Navas’ sense of optimism during a time of uncertainty and anxiety.
