Four Extraordinary Solo Exhibitions for Art Walk

ART GALERIA

By Margaret Failoni

The Galería Intersección once again brings a class-act series of four exhibitions for the delight of its public.

Given the space, an art gallery is fortunate to have four extraordinary talents opening on the same night. Alberto Lenz is not new to the San Miguel de Allende audience. But on this occasion, the multifaceted artist, best known for his sculpture, presents us with a large selection of studies for murals. Bright in Fauvist-inspired color, the constructivism in these geometric designs invites the viewer to imagine a mural, perhaps at the end of an entrance, or across a large room. He manages to give new twists to geometric designs, making them into sensuous—yes, sensuous—works. Therein lies the magic. These beauties are accompanied by a few small sculptures in a subtle melange of color, plus three stately towers sculpted in natural wood.

Angel Ricardo R. Rios returns to San Miguel with a group of oil paintings, disappointedly less erotic than usual but in turn much more romantic. Once again, these semiabstract homages to the floral magnificence of Cuernavaca’s spring marvel with their pure energy and beauty. Ricardo Rios is a master painter without a doubt.

Fresh from a mind-blowing exhibition in the San Miguel branch of Bellas Artes, Yui Sakamoto has prepared a very intimate exhibition specifically created for and inspired by the Day of the Dead holiday season. The young Japanese surrealist makes no mystery of his fascination with Mexican iconography and this country’s traditions.

For this show, he has purposely ignored his usually ever-present color field, instead opting to shock us with an almost totally black-and-white imagery of death in the most poetic fashion. These are small jewels to be treasured.

And last but not least, a surprising, fashionable, Kabuki-like series of personalities straight out of an Oriental dream and created by Daniel Sirdey. Yes, Sirdey, the movie buff, architect, and bon vivant. Who knew? These are brilliantly executed collages that must be seen, quite abstract and yet obviously figurative, with faceless performers in magnificent and voluptuous costumes.
