"Theatrix" is influenced from Kabuki, a classical
Japanese dance-drama. Jose wanted to capture the over played out drama in
everyday life and to glorify the illusion it holds by slowly dismantling it in
sections and shapes. Each print is made unique with drawn mini heads
floating on the bottom of the print.
