  • James hd Brown

    James hd Brown

    Los Ángeles, California, Estados Unidos, b. 1950
    James hd Brown’s work consists of painting, experimental stamp, ceramic, textiles and artist books. It can aesthetically be located on the context of contemporary tendencies that have moved the abstract language towards new poetics. The series he produces are among a practice in which abstraction generates images structured as very subtle models or diagrams. The cult that this artist has to the connection of the visual to the mental sceneries as well as the passion he has to found and energetically charged supports, create a body of work that goes from immaterial representation contained in neutral spaces to the construction of passages of post-psychedelic painting.

  • Pedro Friedeberg

    Pedro Friedeberg

    Florencia, Italia, b. 1936
      Living legend Pedro Friedeberg lives and works in Mexico City. He belongs to a group of 20th century eccentric and iconoclastic artists like Gunther Gerzso and Leonora Carrington who were irreverent, rejecting the social and political art, which was dominant at the time. “Los Hartos”group were original, irreverent and iconoclastic. From Friedeberg´s first exhibition, his work has had an easily identifiable style, although it is not easily classifiable. He often uses architectural drawing as his medium to create unusual compositions including designs for “useless objects”, often as a result of boredom. He has studied and incorporated elements of various artistic and design trends from his lifetimes from Art Noveau to Op Art. Much of his work has an industrial quality, stemming from his training as an architect. However, there is a dream like quality as well, painting impossible palaces and other structures, with innumerable halls and rooms, secret passages and stairs which are often absurd. Irony and surfeit are generally expressed through the almost hallucinogenic repetition of elements and formal disorder, but it is the result of conscious thought. Paintings, sculptures, furniture and more are often characterized as being filled with ornamentation, with little or no white space, with lines, colors and symbols referencing ancient scriptures, Aztec Codices, Catholicism, Hinduism and the occult. While his art has been criticized as adding ornament for its own sake or even distraction, he disagrees, saying that ornamentation is the oldest form of fine art, added to give objects an exceptional, even religious quality. He has called his extensive ornamentation, which i includes elements from ancient texts, “Nintendo Churrigueresque”. Today Friedeberg at 80 is still producing fresh new work from his studio and even experimenting with new possibilities within installation and multimedia collaborations. For Zona Maco 2017 Modern Section, the artist presents a  series of geometrical paintings and a new sculpture series made of steel to be shown publicly for the fist time. This sculptures are based in geometrical objects always present in his drawings and paintings. Geometrical shapes inspired by Platonic and Pythagorean solids, sacred geometry and quantum physics.
