This work is a blending of two different drawings; as its title suggests, by overlapping divergent times, backgrounds and figures a new single composition emerges. It depicts a human silhouette gazing into a mess background, the calmness from the figure reminds as a pictorial gesture while contrasting with the strong and vivid colors from the background.
In his first solo exhibition in Spain at the Espacio Minimo gallery, entitled “Trasnochar, pulir y roer”, curated by Omar López-Chahoud, the Mexican artist HÉCTOR JIMÉNEZ CASTILLO presents works created for the occasion, which seems to have been made in the transition between sleep and awakening, or after a long wakefulness or insomnia. They could be called ‘bed drawings’, ‘lectulo graphis’ or ‘imago-noctámbula’ and they are the result of a process without prior judgments, where both the silhouettes and the space-background relationship between them are distorted. The figures propose choreographies, moments of proxemics and gaze games in these environments. It is an approach to action through drawing, a relationship between the body and its possibilities within a visual universe that requires its own laws and rules.
Jiménez Castillo's work is influenced by intuition, chance, and the use of aspects of his own biography that emerge from the body as a catalyst and mediator of experiences, context, and knowledge. His artwork frequently describes human vulnerability and examines identity and intimacy. The artist investigates the production of images that are inspired by our unconscious and explores them in different media that include choreography, texts, drawings and sculptures.
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
