Curated by Chris Sharp Known for his irreverent reverence of materials, such as women’s clothing, domestic furnishings and vintage photography, among other things, Martín Soto Climent is an inveterate recycler. However, his work is less about valorizing the overlooked, neglected and everyday than it is about transforming it. These transformations, which are marked as much by

Curada por Chris Sharp Conocido por su irreverente reverencia a los materiales, tales como ropa de mujer, artículos del hogar y fotografías antiguas, entre otras cosas, Martín Soto Climent es un reciclador empedernido. Su trabajo no es tanto sobre valorizar lo ignorado, descuidado y cotidiano, sino sobre transformarlo. Sin embargo, estas transformaciones, que son marcadas

A sculptor by trade, Pernice’s work exists at the juncture of autonomous sculpture and installation. Its specific constellation of reference includes everything from vernacular or anonymous urban architectural elements, product display design, and the accidental cumulative aesthetics of, say, the garage, as well as an elaborate, on-going discourse regarding the sculpture and its pedestal that

Lucas Arruda

Lulu Ciudad de México, México 09/18/2015 – 11/22/2015

Known principally for his paintings, Arruda has developed a pictorial practice that is, paradoxically, as complex as it is apparently simple. For the past several years, his work has revolved largely around the frontal portrayal of seascapes. Moody, liminal and atmospheric, these seascapes range from the stormy to the foggy to the airy to the quiescent, taking place

Conocido principalmente por sus pinturas, Arruda ha desarrollado una práctica pictórica que es paradójicamente tan compleja como aparentemente simple. Durante los últimos años, su trabajo ha girado en gran parte alrededor de la representación frontal de paisajes marinos. Temperamentales, liminales y atmosféricos, estos paisajes van de lo tempestuoso a lo brumoso, de lo aireado a lo quieto, desplegando distintos
