Roberto Munguia: TepeQuetzalandia
to 5 PM
1626-C Hi Line Drive , Dallas, TX
Start date: Saturday, February 23, 2013
End Date: Saturday, March 30, 2013
TepeQuetzalandia, translated from the Aztec is Tepe “mountain” and Quetzal "plumed." "The plumed mountain” or “volcano” serves as the metaphorical inspiration for the works produced by Munguia in the past 18 months and is also the name for Munguia’s Dallas studio. The works include a wide range of materials including paintings in both oil and encaustic, monotype and ink jet prints and porcelain sculpture.
Munguia’s approach to these various media is influenced by the Aztec philosophy of “Nepantla” a metaphysical "striding through the middle" between opposite forces. In Munguia’s process, this balance is between the self-determined order of a formalistic approach to the materials and the prospect of new discoveries through magical chance. Through his production, Munguia skates the razor's edge of the creative impulse, searching for moments in the work of joyous realization.
