The concepts and context of the Surrealist movement had a big impact on the content of Cafiero’s work. He attempts to use colour and imagery within his work to create additional dimensions. In recent years Cafiero has embraced the use of digital technology and print processes.
The focus of this exhibition is being human, and is presented in two parts focusing on being human from the inside, and perspectives on being human from the outside.
