Cerro Colorado (2014), 100”x60”x60” wood, styrofoam, aluminum, clay, metal. This work was created for the exhibition Beyond Limits, Post global mediations curated by Denise Carvalho and Ginger Shullick, presented at the San Diego Art Institute, CA. The work is part of the series Urban Mountains, and at its top it portrays¬† a mountain made following the level curves of the mountain Cerro Colorado, located in Tijuana across the Mexican border, on one of the hills are located aluminum representations of buildings and on the other hill are clay representations of shanty town houses, a landscape very familiar to all of us. Also the mountain lays on top of an agglomeration of cut palettes and a cut gallery pedestal, creating the image of unbalance or instability of the values on which our societies are built on.
