Gathering inspiration from the local landscape, he recreates surfaces that suggest a process of decay, transformation and renewal. His compositions are energized by the interplay of vibrant color, texture and image. His thoughtful use of different media reinforces a sense of history and memory. -Linda Lewis

Practical Acts of Perception

Cande Aguilar, Jorge Purón & Mauricio Sáenz

Opening Reception: Friday, December 15, 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates: December 15 – January 14, 2018

“Practical Acts of Perception” takes its leitmotif from the idea of scale, and indeed the work presented by Cande Aguilar, Mauricio Sáenz and Jorge Purón all utilize proportion as a device to augment or degrade your perspective. However, they look further into the concept by commenting on scale as it relates to time and even color. Launching from the design of the IFRAO Standard Scale used to document archaeological remains, each artist departs and interprets the idea of scale in their own terms.
Aguilar’s work, for example, challenges the approach to abstraction by using different scale formats yet employing same aesthetic values, thus testing the viewer to witness the same depth and impact despite the contrasting sizes. Reinforcing the idea of putting the eye to the test in the way it perceives “scale”. Purón’s hard-edge geometric forms examine landscape undergoing distortion based on technical issues such as depth, angle, and enclosures to convey a sense of a vast place by means of an encapsulated vision. In a more conceptual manner, Mauricio Sáenz’s oeuvre draws references from art history by cross-examining the impact past art icons have left through time limiting and colliding with the perception on modern life and its reality. In this way, the collection presented reiterates, through a varied spectrum of possibilities, the fluctuation of points of view of something that when placed in front of a mirror might be destined to give an accurate reflection yet suffers an alteration as a result of the strategy used to observe it.
