The dystopian landscapes painted by Victor X imply narratives that are otherworldly and futuristic; at
the same time, they reference the emotions and turmoil that have emerged during this year.
Someday, our life on Earth could expand and civilizations might survive on the moon—it is a possible future that is presented in Blue Moon of Tomorrow. In this realm, stars dance across the darkness of space like the banner of a flag, establishing a reference to a sort of governing system. The stark and empty surface of the land appears uninhabitable and the brushstrokes made by the artist evoke the feeling of a cold, harsh wind. In King of the Mountain, we see a creature — or virus — looking at us.
Its single eye like that of a surveillance camera monitoring our presence. The creature hovers over the
frameworks of a town that stands delicately in the shadows. Its size in comparison to the architecture
is larger than life and seems to be in a position of control.
The paintings are propaganda for the mind, presenting to us the possibility that we may exist within
realms that only our imagination can see now, but hints of this future are already on the horizon.
