Gustavo Pérez works through variations of his works like a musician improvising on a melody. Small details become important. Lines of extraordinary subtlety appear, incised into the surface of clay, with no superfluous detail. More than containers or receptacles, his forms are supports for his calligraphic drawings. Each work remains a distinct invention, combining symmetry and intuitive sensitivity. Pérez’s art suggests a wide range of influences, from Modernist sculpture to the ancestral traditions of Asia and Meso-America.

Despite a modesty of means and scale, Pérez’s ceramics have achieved worldwide recognition, including a 2012 retrospective at Museo Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City.
