ANGELBERT METOYER (pop-up Torre INVEX, MX)
Clay + Coal: Modern Spirited Essentialism
For the past 20 years he has drawn as part of his personal process in completing paintings, but never as a work for an exhibition. Drawings were something intimate, a reflection of his inner self that was to be kept secret. It was part of his private process.But drawing, as painting, is also a language. After experiencing the freedom of painting, he is exploring the freedom of drawing, a language that flows naturally from his mind onto the canvas.
Using adapted materials, Angelbert created this series of work in Monterrey. These drawings on translucent materials with artist made inks express a spirited non-conceptual narrative, while the installations express a conceptual one, revealing contrasting effects. These drawings along with the installation open a relationship with the space between the artist, object, environment, and light.
