While traipsing a spectrum of routes to discover new growth, visual artist, Miguel Franco, stumbles upon the realization of looking within to achieve a recognizable perspective on personal reawakening.

“Rebirth” is an introspection of Miguel Franco on reconnecting with his past self, collecting individual remnants which contributed to former artistic strides, and utilizing nostalgia as a cocoon to eventually emerge anew. With much effort already exerted on lingering thoughts and emotions of outward direction, Miguel recognizes the pulse of the innate to be more impactful. In this exhibition, the artist reintroduces the light post as a mark of an artistic revival. Reminiscent of his past series, Miguel deconstructs and reconstructs his subject, unveiling several identities to the light structure, and expanding the personality of what was once deemed solitary.

Through his artworks, the artist narrates his walk back along a familiar route, reaching ground zero, reopening a cordial dialogue with his old self, and ultimately finding gentle wisps that illuminate an
undiscovered trail toward rebirth.
