Robert Figueroa: Tom, Dick, and Harry: The Everyday Man Series

 

Many people develop relationships through various forms of social media, (Facebook, LinkedIn, Grinder, etc.) often first "knowing" another only through a simple profile picture. We make instant decisions and judgments based on those pictures, processing attraction, indifference and at times, rejection. These profile pictures say a lot about how we want to be perceived and how we create new relationships, be them professional or personal. Through those on-line portraits, we make decisions about entering a conversation, sharing intimate details, and in some instances, human contact.

This installation, by Fort Lauderdale based artist Robert Figueroa, uses photographic portraits of society’s idealized males as portrayed through action figure dolls. Each portrait is sized at one-sixth human scale, printed in a classic Polaroid-like format, giving an immediate temporal sense to each portrait. In presenting these images, the artist asks us to examine feelings of attraction and rejection of others though social media. Can we feel we know someone based solely on their online profile photographs? Is it possible for an inanimate toy to provoke the same feelings? Which one would best document how you would like to represent yourself? Which one would you start a conversation with?

Opening Reception: July 18, 6-8 pm
