LOS ETERNOS 2.0
Charles Glaubitz drawings, acrylic paintings on canvas, mixed media, collage and installation flow together to form a meta-narrative telling the story of the "Viejo Mundo" and "Los Nuevos Dioses". The "Viejo Mundo" was destroyed by two archetypes El Rey Capitalista and El Jardinero when facing each other (ego and self) in their final struggle, and thus creating a new universe "Los Nuevos Dioses" where "Los Eternos" dwell.
Charles Glaubitz artwork is influenced by ancient cultures, history, myth, alchemy, hermetic knowledge, quantum physics, comic books, spirituality, mysticism and Mexican pop culture. Los Eternos 2.0, with more than 100 individual pieces, is a chapter of the new "old" story, the inherent struggle among endless duality fighting in a grand scheme, populated by subatomic and ethereal beings - a shamantic tale, full of archetypes that live in works from psychology to comic books, and with characters like The Capitalist King (Mickey Mouse) and the El Niño Burro (the maverick type) born from poverty of economics but rich in creativity, soul, passion and drive. This body of work elaborate on this great saga giving us a glance at the life, death, battles, conflicts, ideals, virtues, vices - past, present and future - where the artist explores sub-plots and theatrical dramas.
