Tijuana-based artist, Charles Glaubitz, whom we have featured in the magazine in year's past, has a new installation on display at the Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT). The exhibition recreates the 10-year timeline of a narrative as one sequential piece, from the beginning and subsequent end of the old world.
Here is the full press release, and the show is up through December at CECUT...
Charles Glaubitz mixed media drawings, acrylic paintings on canvas, collaged felt paintings, animated videos, graphic novels, collages and installations flow and merge together to form a modern mythology a meta-narrative telling the story of the "Viejo Mundo" and "Los Nuevos Dioses". His artwork is influenced by ancient cultures, history, myth, alchemy, hermetic knowledge, quantum physics, comic books,spirituality, mysticism and new age spiritualism.
His body of work elaborate on this great saga giving us a glance at the life, death, battles, conflicts, ideals, virtues, vices - past, present and future - where the artist explores sub-plots and theatrical dramas, in a attempt to create new myths.
The installation in CECUT recreates the 10 year timeline of the narrative as one sequential piece, from the beginning and subsequent end of the old world, to the new big bang of the eternals and the crystal sigil. This installation can be seen in CECUT Tijuana till December.
