Descripción de la Exposición

Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is delighted to present Osculum, a solo exhibition of new works by Mexico City­based American artist Thomas Glassford. Glassford’s practice incorporates the use of everyday materials and artifacts to create three­dimensional sculptures and installations that both quote and question the established languages of Minimalism, Geometric Abstraction and Op Art. With text written by Beverly Adams, Osculum includes a seductive display of vibrantly colorful constructed paintings produced by the artist following intuitive patterns. They fuse organic and industrial materials and shapes to create hybrid structures, where the organic is technologically mediated and forced into gestural, geometric shapes. The origin of Glassford’s "paintings" are a series of “blind contour drawings” that he develops by drawing on a tablet following a “blind process”. This technique is reminiscent of life drawing, as the artist eschews the immediacy of looking at the result and follows the sole intention of interconnecting each line by 90­degree angles. The drawn shapes are subsequently turned into tridimensional forms and cut by a computer­driven saw, staging a form of automation and precision that is antithetical to the intuitive nature of his drawings. “Osculum” refers to an excurrent aperture in the porous body of a sponge, through which water currents exit after traversing the sponge’s cavities. This filtering process is evocative of Glassford’s performative mediation of natural forms, which he brings into two­ and then three­dimensional artworks with alluring, semi­organic qualities. Thomas Glassford was born in Laredo, Texas in 1963. After graduating with a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, Glassford moved to Mexico City in 1990, where he has been based ever since. His work is included in major public and private art collections, such as The Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Jumex Collection (Mexico City), Phoenix Art Museum (Phoenix), Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (Miami), Bruce and Diane Halle Collection (Scottsdale), Colección Valdemarín (Madrid), Televisa Collection (Mexico), among others.
