Works by Mizraim Cárdenas
(August 24 – September 23, 2007)

The constant passing over a geographic area provokes routes to remain in the memory of everyone. In this geography, we can draw our daily dreams on a piece of paper. Though, the real travelable geography is maybe mankind’s utopia, the one that has clearly marked limitations over the distance. I paralleled the quality of these images with the actual artistic creation since it is the actual act of drawing a search for our own path.

More decidedly, a path that turns clearer when it becomes the contour of something that must be constant.
A visual tour of Mizraim Cardenas body of work allows us to observe a figurative language that does not get on the way of a well defined search. Here he makes the surroundings as his own to create atmospheres and where the characters can freely walk over travelable geographies.
