MADE IN MÉRIDA by DAVID SERRANO
September 23rd- October 21st 2023
Opening: September 23rd, 5-9 pm
David Serrano is a surreal artist, born in Mexicali. Having lived for decades in Los Angeles, California, in 2014 he moved to Mérida, a city and region known for its stunning nature and aesthetic beauty derived from its rich cultural history influenced by the Mayan and Spanish influences that make Mérida one of the main cultural centers in America.
"Made in Mérida" explores the transition and aesthetic results that David Serrano experienced when he made this city his new home. In this new stage, his work is mediated by the luminosity and texture that shows the artist's ability to mediate the relationship between atmosphere and nature by exploring the beauty of ordinary events. A glass bead on the road, an eye, a textile fragment, the song of a bird in the morning, and the reflection of a sunset on the sand, are all accidents that cross the path of the artist to become surreal aesthetic experiences that communicate affection, inspire joy, laughter and moments of union.
