Scenes of Life
Rodrigo de la Sierra (Mexico, 1971)

Since the beginning of history, man has been concerned about its representation, using different resources and techniques. The modernist movement of the nineteenth century opened the possibility of sculpture to expand its field, to make it a space for other types of reflection beyond the classical representation of humanity. De la Sierra, who dedicated the beginning of his training to classical sculpture, with great precision, gave way to the creation of narratives from a tragic comedy, creating the character “Timoteo” who he affectionately nicknamed “Timo”. The work of Rodrigo de la Sierra demonstrates the commitment that the artist has with both the artistic discipline and the contemporaneity of the world. Scenes of life is part of the metaphor of human representation to transcend time and contexts.
De la Sierra refers to a Thymus as the “man of all”, a type of alter ego that explores the human condition. Emotions as complex as loneliness, war, sadness, love or our deepest dreams are represented and make us reflect on the creation of our stories, realities, fictions or moments of our life.
The unique narrative scenes of Rodrigo de la Sierra, make the matter, based on a character, take on characteristics that embody humanity.

Expanded limits explores the work of a group of national and foreign artists who at the moment of materializing their creative idea not only seek the most ideal and expressive resources to solidify their discourse, but also transcend the limits of space and research, following the thread of their creative action, on the frontiers of art and in constant plastic experimentation.
The exhibition has particularly different speeches that approach each other when crossing the limits of drawing, painting and graphics using materials such as cardboard, wire, wood, thread, paper and resin, among others, and whose characteristics allows them to create new perceptual environments in the spectator.
From the figuration to the field of abstraction, the exhibition has different overtones, between the exploration of space, the expansion of form in a horizontal space, the transformation of elements from two-dimensional to three-dimensional space, as well as the volumetric exploration and color that will reinforce the perception of the speech.
