    Ricardo Gonzalez

    Mexico City, Mexico, b. 1980
    Ricardo Gonzalez utilizes a limited palette, simplified mark-making, and sense of humor to explore the language of expressionistic painting and drawing. His work draws on art historical movements of the 20th century, manic drawing mimicking an intuitive child-like doodle, teenage fantasies found in Mexican comics, and the current era’s renaissance of Art Brut as seen in painters like Joe Bradley and Oscar Murillo. Mutinous figures with grimaces and smirks frequent Gonzalez’s work and present a symbiotic duality as he ricochets between the sublime and the nihilistic, creating a tacit dialogue between satirical cartoon and evocative painterly gesture. Gonzalez elevates seemingly cursory doodles from their predictable banality, as subconscious “automatic” drawing amasses significance, transcending into objects of art and becoming signifiers of pure form, medium, and process. Ricardo Gonzalez was born in Mexico City and lives and works in New York. He received an MFA from New York University, and his BFA at New England School of Art & Design, Boston, MA and Madrid, Spain. He has exhibited in numerous venues in New York, NY, Boston, MA, Miami, FL, Berlin, Mexico, and Belgium. Recent exhibitions include UNTITLED. Miami, Galeria Talcual, Mexico City, Traneudstillingen, Copenhagen, Denmark, and Galeria W, Santiago, Chile. He is a recipient of the Martin Wong Scholarship Award in Painting, and his work has been reviewed in the Wall Street Journal, Time Out New York, Art F City, and Pas un Autre.

  • Gabriel de la Mora

    Gabriel de la Mora

    Mexico City, México, b. 1968
    Gabriel de la Mora (1968, Mexico City) lives and works in Mexico City. De la Mora focuses his artistic practice in the use or reuse of discarded and obsolete objects that appear to have concluded their utilitarian life. More interested in the deconstruction and fragmentation of an object or material over time, De la Mora refuses the notion of the artist as a virtuoso and rather focuses on reconstructing through process and time-based practices, echoing the concept of the ready-made. Through an obsessive process of collecting and cataloguing discarded objects –old radios, shoe soles, glass microscope slides, eggshells, doors and daguerreotypes–, De la Mora reorganizes their fragmentations into a new geometric entirety. Interested in the juxtaposition of making the ephemeral reappear in a new light, De la Mora lends visibility to the auric dimension of an object, comprising its immateriality, which, removed from its previous narrative and once placed in an exhibition context, appears to be in turn looking back.
