Hugo Laborice Presents His Pieces
By Jesús Aguado
Life, happiness, death, reality, and freedom and their antonyms are just some of the themes to be found at an exhibition of unique pieces showing the creativity of Hugo Laborice. He was a dancer, actor, and even a commercial aviation employee. Moreover, he followed not just his dreams and thoughts, but also his fingers that seemed to have charcoal as an extension. His passion and creativity led him to develop a unique technique that can be appreciated in his “perfect and symbolistic” works.
Laborice’s work has been exhibited in different countries besides Mexico, including France, Germany, and Italy. It will be featured at the facilities of Actinver, San Francisco 33, on Friday, March 20, at 7pm. The exhibit will include several pieces by the artist, such as La última cena, En un Mercado persa and Sinfonía al recuerdo.
With more than 300 pieces, the artist comments that his work does not allow errors because from the beginning they were conceived as they would be, so he spends time to finish the paintings when they need to be done. “I do not do sketches or corrections because the idea, like photography, goes from my mind to my eyes and my fingers to be printed.” Sometimes the pieces can be polemical.
For a time, the artist had a fixation with eyes, even for those of other well-known artists. His collection is varied and will be well accepted by visitors, who will find hummingbirds, butterflies, fruits, skeletons, bodies, cities, and a lot of light.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of the pieces will go to the Biblioteca. There is not yet a specific date for the closing of the exhibition, but it will remain for a few weeks at Actinver-Lloyd, said Laborice.
