    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.

  • Francisco Toledo

    Francisco Toledo

    Juchitán, México, b. 1940
    Francisco Benjamín López Toledo (Juchitán, Oaxaca, 17 de julio de 1940) es un artista plástico mexicano que también tiene una destacada labor como activista, luchador social, ambientalista, promotor cultural y filántropo, ha apoyado numerosas causas enfocadas a la promoción y conservación del patrimonio artístico mexicano, orientada al libre acceso a la formación artística y el cuidado del medio ambiente. Francisco Toledo es considerado uno de los mayores artistas vivos de México, cuenta con amplio reconocimiento internacional. Es un experto impresor, dibujante, pintor, escultor y ceramista. Su arte refleja un gran aprecio por la estética de la naturaleza, particularmente la de animales que no son convencionalmente asociados con la belleza como monos, murciélagos, iguanas, sapos e insectos. En su escultura tiene dos formas de expresión, una donde representa cosas del mundo natural, específicamente bestiarios de distintos animales y otro donde se despega totalmente de la realidad. “Fragua, de ese modo, un universo que ata cabos con lo real y, simultáneamente, despliega la metáfora” . Esta última se deja ver en su obra gracias a que representa figuras humanas y de otros animales en una forma de apareamiento ya sea explícito o simbólico. La visión moral de Toledo afirma que el mundo de los humanos y el de los animales son uno con la naturaleza. En sus cuadros se representa mucho la androginia Toledo usa la modernidad y la vanguardia de otras civilizaciones, especialmente la europea, para sus obras  y muestra un sentido de lo fantástico muy desarrollado al crear criaturas antropomórficas que son a la vez monstruosas y juguetonas, personajes que incluye en sus papalotes, libros de artista, máscaras, piezas de joyería y complejos grabados. Debido a sus obras, se dice que Toledo pertenece a la Generación de la Ruptura aunque no haya pertenecido históricamente a la misma.

  • Jérémie Paul

    Jérémie Paul

    Paris, France, b. 1983
    Jérémie Paul was born in Guadeloupe in 1983. He lives in both the West Indies and Europe. He is a multidisciplinary artist fluctuating between painting and installation. He studied at Villa Arson (where he gained his DNSEP in 2009). His career began when he returned to Guadeloupe (2009). He produced an exhibition, ‘Herrellà,’ with the Regional Council of Guadeloupe presenting his pictorial art. The following year he exhibited a sound installation at Artchipel Guadeloupe scène Nationale, revealing the acoustic side to his installation work. After bringing his first projects to fruition in Guadeloupe, he chose to return to Europe. He developed his painting technique for three years in Leipzig before moving to Paris. Invited in 2016 to participate in the exhibition La redite en somme, ne s’amuse pas de sa répétition singulière at the Palais de Tokyo with Sara Favriau curating (winner of the Friends of the Palais de Tokyo Prix Découverte).Between pop art and surrealism, Jérémie Paul presents a world exhibiting a “figure”. A figure in terms of entity, tinged with territoriality, and moved by feelings. His vision is to combine his pretexts (reasons, triggers, needs) and to take them to their limits. These limits encompass his apprehension of genres, concepts and emotions. To gear pieces (paintings, sculptures, installations, costumes, videos…) towards “a maximum of conceivable possibilities” (Édouard Glissant), as a way of opening up to a world generating myth and poetics, in action; action like believing in one’s identity, ideas and dreams.
