Double exhibition: XOCHITEPANYO by Francisco Larios and MEXTIZA by Karla Mayrl. Larios's work is large format pieces, oil ink prints on gold foil and prints on metal plates. Mayrl's work includes materials and textures like natural fibers, paper, gold leaf and everyday objects.
The work of Francisco Larios is characterized by having abstract pictorial elements that refer to the sacred, philosophical themes and postmodern fables. It is an exploration of the human relationship with the world around us. In this exhibition, Larios takes us through a meditation space disguised as a mental garden. Paintings and drawings translate in a geometric language created to transport the viewer to the same state of meditation as a zen room. Personal experiences, projects and spatial constructions are represented in the paintings of this exhibition in the form of roads built to travel with the mind.
The work of Karla Maryl constantly seeks to re-imagine the everyday elements, finding beauty in objects that the common spectator ignores. Creating harmonious and balanced figures, Karla presents us with an aesthetic universe that marvels. In this exhibition, the artist presents us with a series of works that are almost hypnotic. Paper figures seem like jewels of unimaginable value. "Gold for mirrors" is transformed into Mexicans recapturing their space. The transformation of the common object into a tuft of pride and re-appropriation of a space that has always belonged to us.
