Telling stories is one of the most important aspects of postmodern culture. And contemporary art has challenged and expanded traditional narrative structures.
The stories artists tell today, often describe the world that we live in. The artistic narrative mainly mirrors the reality –past or present, objective or subjective. Through narratives, artists encourage dialogue, share ideas, address morality, reveal desire, confront angst, and define identity. So mirroring the reality, contemporary narratives instigate change.
We look for more unorthodox means to create images whose meanings do not depend on pre-existing narratives directly quoted or alluded to. Storylines may be implied or ambiguous, prompting viewers to create or complete the story in personal terms.
