  • Catalogue Essay

    Esson, who equates sexuality with violence, power, politics and many of the other forces behind the powers which propel human existence, is intensely interested in provoking a confrontational dialogue between the viewer and the work of art. He has no interest in or patience with the passive spectator. His aim is to shock us into recognition of the multitude of meanings that are produced in our subconscious by contemplating his art.
    Edward J. Sullivan, Tomás Esson: Chá-Chá-Chá, 1993
