New Works by Miguel Aragon
Opening Friday, March 21, 2014, 7pm to 11pm. The exhibition continues through April 26 and will be available for viewing 12pm – 5pm on Saturdays and by appointment. This will be our last exhibition in the Navasota space.
The exhibition will include two large-scale works that are a continuation of Aragon’s series of hand-drilled portraits. Of this series Aragon states:
“The content for my images come from photographs published by the media, which depict very raw forensic evidence. These photographs deal with the Mexican Drug Cartel Wars in which Ciudad Juárez, my native city, has been a primary battleground. My work is derived from a need to find meaning in these brutal events that reposition the corpse in our field of vision, reminding us that our physical existence is finite.”
Aragon will also show a selection of small-scale works from a new series that explores “visual crowding,” defined as the inability to distinguish details in clutter. These are abstract representations of his constantly changing environments and living situations over the past year and a half.
Miguel Aragon received an MFA from The University of Texas at Austin. His work has been exhibited at the International Print Center (NY), Austin Museum of Art, Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin), Lamego Museum and Douro Museum (Portugal), OSDE Espacio de Arte (Argentina), and at numerous galleries across the U.S.
