Preview: Rene Almanza @ Gerrish Fine Art, LondonJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 20 Jun 2012
We have been previewing works from Mexico's Rene Almanza on the occasion of his exhibition in conjunction with Gerrish Fine Art in London. Draws of Perception, featuring 1001 drawings, has been moved to Shop 12, Dray Walk, and The Old Truman Brewery in London, and opens on July 4, 2012.
The exhibition will feature an epic 1001 drawings in ink, each measuring 15 x 15 cm. These will be hung side by side to form an immersive environment that will envelop the viewer and inundate the mind with the captivating images of Almanza's visual universe. The project represents an intense exploration into drawing. Almanza explains 'when you are drawing for a long time it is almost as if you are draining your code all over the surfaces you touch. In the case of this exhibition we have lots of little squares, lots of little windows, each of which present a series of new possibilities to follow. When you see all these possibilities we can understand immediately that drawing is infinite'.
