The Embassy of Mexico in Indonesia and the Honorary Consul of Mexico in Bali, Mr. Gusti Yudhara, will open the exhibition “Signs of History” in Bali on Monday, December 19, 2011 at 7:00 p.m
Exhibiting the works of two Mexican artists, Martha Delgado and Casandra Sabag, both graduates from the National School of Plastic Arts at Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM).
Martha Delgado’s creations endeavor to retrieve the seemingly otherwise exhausted genre of portraiture. In most of her paintings, she uses the vertical and rectangular format, taking advantage of the photographic angle. Her pieces have a dynamic framework that appears as a constant element in the integration of the figures. Her use of colored glazes and nostalgic elements show her technical skills, mingle with the use of transparencies that brings to her work a free brushwork in a "poetic realism" environment. Moreover, she is able to project amazing contemporary views of her own reality, the creation of an intimate ambience.
Cassandra Sabag’s collections, meanwhile, show a very complex work, using vitreous enamel, collage, oil, graphite and encaustic. Such techniques populate a number of small paintings. Although these are traditional techniques, the way Sabag uses them produces a very untraditional and incredible result. The formal resolution of the frames is an exploration that covers a wide range of intentions: from the fine and energetic line to well-detailed drawings. Another element of Sabag’s work is the use of gold recovering.
