Mauricio Galguera Artist Bio:

Artist born on December 20th, 1958 in Mexico. Currently works and lives in Mexico City. Has worked in Paris, Barcelona, Hong Kong, London, New York and Tailand.I belive that painting is the essential element of art. Through my carreer I have specialized in both drawing and painting, but I have also worked with other techniques such as sculpture and installation, which I have been using recently in a more regular basis. I work in series due to my belief of the importance of having a common element in all the pieces of my work through a certain period of time. There are events that drastically change the direction of one's work. Sometimes these events can be huge and sometimes, like recently in my case, can be common events with great impact in the way we face our creation: a sudden and strong hailstorm inundates my studio and all my paintings, photographs and drawings. A great part of many years or work was lost. It was a terrible loss for me and from that moment on, I came to notice that very tiny elements can impact life strongly. That consideration is permeating my work in such a way that my plastic language has begun to change. The result is this new series, " Lost Archives 2012", which marks a turning point in my production. I have synthesized a conceptual framework that pours into the paintings, drawings and satellite works in the form of diagrams, registry and narrations of such events previously described. www.mauriciogalguera.com
