Intersección Gallery Celebration

By Margaret Failoni

The Intersección Gallery celebrates its expansion into the adjoining group of light-infused spaces by presenting solo exhibitions by five of its most interesting and diverse artists. Listed and described in the order of entrance to the gallery, the artists are Rodrigo de la Sierra, Santiago Corral (the original founder of the gallery), Ian Johnson, Alberto Lenz, and Angel Ricardo Ricardo Rios.

Rodrigo de la Sierra is certainly not new to the San Miguel audience as his sculpture hero, Timo, has been a continuous presence in San Miguel. With major exhibitions all over Mexico, the most recent in the Senate building on Mexico City’s Reforma, de la Sierra’s rise to national fame in a few short years is nothing short of phenomenal. His alter ego, Timo, manages to charm the viewer, thanks to his always gentle and subtle message on man’s frailties. He is now packing his bags to conquer audiences with his upcoming mega-show in Chicago.

Santiago Corral’s exquisite realism presents us with beautiful views of the Valle de Mexico, along with his superb rendering of man’s spiritual presence inside disquieting interiors. He never fails. This new series of interiors leaves us waiting to see the occupants who stubbornly remain outside of the picture plane.

The British artist and San Miguel resident Ian Johnson presents us with two facets of his present creativity. In one we are presented with a stunning series of minimal abstract works, where geometric form and color are rigorously used to create mysterious and elegant works. The other is much like Pino Pinelli’s quotation, “as with my third eye, I would like to reach the atomic substance of form and movement as an element of strength and constitution of a different kind of painting.” Atom-like forms are dancing across the picture plane to metamorphose into brilliant winter and summer landscapes—pure magic.

Alberto Lenz once again comes up with a series of sculptures which always elate us. From beautifully and delicately sculpted marble shapes to bright and sensuous iron abstract figures, his sculptures grace the galleries’ new patio space.

And lastly, the exuberant and sensuous paintings of Angel Ricardo Ricardo Rios. These newest works, a continuum of the exhibition in Bellas Artes, are an ever more tantalizing riotous exhibition of the artist’s love affair with nature’s floral offerings. The Cuban artist manages to make abstract painting become almost figurative with this passionate rendering of these magnificent gifts of nature.

The new spaces presented with these five exhibitions will allow the Intersección Gallery ever more opportunities for bringing new and exciting art to San Miguel de Allende.
