Kon Trubkovich's work deals with paradoxes within the human condition. He examines normally opposing notions of captivity and freedom, revealing the frequent proximity and cross over of the two. Within this framework he explores work as a social motivator and a tool of oppression. These themes are ultimately metaphors for the process of art making and the identity of the artist.
Kon Trubkovich's creative process begins with videos. The footage serves a dual purpose: one is as a source for further work, the other a complete statement. Those not discarded are expanded, edited and presented as film pieces. As he studies the footage, Trubkovich pauses at intriguing moments. From these moments he creates watercolours, drawings and paintings.
