Circa Circus brings together, for the first time, a series of Escora’s large-scale charcoal works. At the same time, we witness the artist’s definite trajectory towards exploring the mental event of accumulating content vis-a-vis the operations of intuition in relating to the influx of images and references that preoccupy our daily experiences. He construes the more immediate, personal state of acquiring, sieving out and distributing images. Unlike the visual ease of many of his portraits, the ones from this series are manipulated in tones, interweaving the play of contrasts and shadow. The process involved in Escora’s new charcoal works is about the deliberate mastery of the dominating medium of charcoal where the image needs to materialize before the execution. With such little space for change, these works encapsulates decisions driven by an exactness that can only be predetermined with gut feel.
