DESCRIPTION

Artist Lisandro Rome Perez presents "Toilet Train" series
"A peek through the bathroom keyhole" in the "Social Conditioning" group show at Femina Potens
gallery

July 5 - July 27, 2008

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday July 5, 2008, 7-10pm

Artist Lisandro Rome Perez presents "Toilet Train" series, a peek  through the bathroom keyhole, in the "Social Conditioning" group show at  Femina Potens gallery. The exhibition includes several of his new  colorful paintings in acrylics and oils, and will be featured from  July 5 through July 27, 2008.

The "Toilet Train" series examines the outcomes of rigid societal  restrictions and expectations placed on children during the Anal Phase  of development. This is a peek through the bathroom
keyhole; a look at  erotic fascinations, self censorship, and adult coping tools used to achieve balance between the needs of the self and social acceptance.  Lisandro Rome Perez incorporates idealized fairytale imagery to  represent what society believes children should be: good, clean, 
polite, subservient. Many are images from the storybooks that he grew up with that illustrated outmoded methods of teaching control to  children. The artist says, "Making playfully ill-mannered
art allows  me to reach out in a ubiquitously human manner, while exploring my  individual experience". These colorful journeys into the psyche through everyday subjects are universal emotional states in pictorial  form.
