'One too many eye' is a stunning full-color anthology of Jerome Sli’s work from 1995 to 2012, introducing the viewer into a spiral of attractive colors, references, and compositions with a distinctive worldview. Eroticism, illusions and ultimately life are among the dominating themes of his very personal and bold style. Curved shapes and their rapid strokes project an envelope of energy and movement, taking the viewer gradually to another unknown dimension. Simplicity and complexity are fused with reality and abstraction to form a whole. Sometimes there is accusation, sometimes there is merely the highlighting of reality. Conflicting elements like heaven and hell enter into each other, and obsessive repetition becomes hypnotic. Words play a key role, and each work’s title is a starting point for reflection. Carefully chosen, loud colors draw attention away from recurring fears, reminding the viewer of past experiences and of the urge to live, providing proof that the world is a network in which the truth gets lost. No matter the weight of the words, "the world is ... a drop in the bucket." Sli is a California and Baja California based artist, his life is a mix of cultures and contexts that is key to defining his work.
