The theory of cognitive dissonance was developed by Leon Festinger in 1957. It proposed that human beings strive for internal psychological consistency in order to mentally function in the «real world». This show looks at the variety of ways in which an individual solves problems. From the efforts to render full landscapes with ambiguous narratives which draw from tropes that date back to simpler, ancient times, to the mapping of pre-existing patterns and their relationship with our daily experiences. All to make sense of an ever-shifting cultural landscape and an even more uncertain future. Cognitive dissonance speaks of the realities that are constantly shifted in this age of mass media manipulation and the result of having unlimited access to information at our fingertips.

Oscar Barillas, a Guatemalan Native whose art practice is based in the Northeast Ohio region, relies on his intuition when determining the conception of his works. He uses a vast array of materials to construct creative narratives which reflect to the viewer familiar scenes in unique and inventive ways.
