The title for José Rojasʼ second solo show at the gallery refers to a search for new images through a recognition of the artistʼs Self and other archetypes. For his instinctive and automatic projection of images and personal mandalic symbols Rojas uses archaic matter as stimulus to elicit his individual ﬁxed action patterns (FAPs). These patterns are instinctive behavior mechanisms sparked by an external environment, sign or sensory stimulus. For José, these personal dialectics are triggered by his innate and individual history with marble and water, their properties, oneiric powers and their trending in contemporary art consciousness.
