COLL.EO, Honestee, Digital print on canvas, 12 x 16 in, 2015

Honestee consists of several digital prints on canvas, each measuring 12 x 16, wrapped in cellophane and displayed in a grid. 

Each image depicts a male or female model wearing a t-shirt. 

The models have been appropriated from an online website. 

Each t-shirt has been customized with remarkable doses of sincerity and contagious creativity by COLL.EO using a text & style editor. 

The following typefaces have been used: SUPERSTAR 54 and FUTURA MEDIUM. 

Honestee is what America is really about.

There are nebulous horizons playing tricks on us by promising the illusion of change while simultaneously defending the interest of the status quo. There is no sea or land that separate or unite us; there are only desires. We are all in a mirage longing for something tangible which becomes intangible when viewed upon the prism of expectations. The unlikelihood of possible alternatives will become clear as subversive practices are recognized for what they really are: hegemonic lollipops - as harmless as tooth decay and bad breath - yet can lead to heart failure.


A tientas, como perdidos en la niebla vamos engañándonos a nosotros mismos. Por la ilusión, por ese posible cambio venidero que al mismo tiempo nos deja perdidos en la ensoñación (y el estatus quo). Realmente ni los mares, ni las fronteras nos unen o separan; el deseo es lo único que existe. Todos estamos inmersos en un espejismo, deseando, esperando por algo tangible que al mismo tiempo se vuelve inasible cuando lo vemos a través del cristal de las expectativas. La improbabilidad de cualquier otra alternativa se pone de manifiesto cuando reconocemos el verdadero valor de cualquier "acto subversivo"; al final solo parecen caramelos hegemónicos tan innocuos como un dolor de muelas.
