Helder Batista, ‘Oh Captain, My Captain ’, 2017, Artist's Proof

Jesus figurine painted as Captain America in Resin.

Batista’s larger oeuvre explores themes of nonsense, consumerism, globalization and overconsumption without searching for concrete explanations. By toying rather than pontificating, Batista can be playful while also gesturing at serious dissonances in society; Batista welcomes discussion, but resists projections of specific programs onto his pieces.
