My Highlights from Zona MACO
I like artists who deal with political and sociological themes as well as artists who speak about memories and time.
This artist from Guatemala takes objects from everyday life, like the skateboards or basketballs found on the street, and transforms them into precious, treasure-like objects.
Guadalajara native Gonzalo Lebrija is one of the most important artists from the new generation of Mexican artists. The violent, explosive nature of this work is beautiful and spiritual.
Mid-career artist Lorna Simpson expresses the everyday life of African American women in a very beautiful way.
This artist comes from Cyprus, and his work speaks about the fragility of the economy and the banking system. Gold serves as a symbol of security and a worldwide currency that can always be used. The simplicity of this piece is very tender.
Iñaki Bonillas is a great artist whose work is about memories and documentation. This is a beautiful piece.
Michel François is a very important artist who comes from the heritage of Surrealism, and this piece is quite poetic and romantic.
