Opening of the exhibit Campo Unificado: La Frontera
SAN ANTONIO, TX.- The Instituto Cultural de México invites you to the opening of the exhibit: “Unified Field: The Border” by Beatriz Ezban.
The nine new paintings and ten drawings in “Unified Field: The Border” grew out of a residency at the Yaddo artist colony in upstate New York. Ezban confronts a politically charged contemporary issue; however, her emphasis is not on divisions but rather on the nature of thresholds, what she describes as the magnetic fields where cultures meet and interact.
She translates these concerns into universal and aesthetic terms, in richly textured paintings made with oil and wax on linen, the surfaces scraped with a palette knife. Ezban explores the transitional range between figuration and abstraction.
Her simplified human forms–essentially silhouettes-are choreographed into configurations that allude obliquely to current events while retaining a timeless humanity.
Ezban hopes to negotiate between conflicting imperatives at what she calls the “asymmetrical meeting points.” Art itself can turn the “edges of chaos” into “unified fields” of harmonious interaction.
