Gustavo Pérez Monzón: Wefts
Elsa Vega and René Francisco Rodríguez
Wefts is the first solo show by Gustavo Pérez Monzón (Cuba, 1956) in Cuernavaca, a City where he has lived since 1990 and where he has established himself as a key figure in the the formation of young artists, as well as one of the founders of the Centro Morelense de las Artes (CMA) and Una Línea de Gis, a space of collaboration between artisans and artists. The fifty works of the exhibition were acquired by the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection (CIFO) in 2015 and represent one of the most productive periods of Pérez Monzón as an artist in his country of origin, between 1979 and 1983. For the exhibition at the MMAC, the artist will present the most ambitious version to date of his emblematic work Vilos (1981-2015) an imposing and meticulous installation of threads and rocks suspended in space. The paintings, drawings and interventions of Wefts, are abstractions similar to astral maps, geological imprints or scientific annotations that together make up a personal and enigmatic cosmogony. Both his artistic and pedagogical practice have been marked by finding, from a sensitive perspective, the qualities of matter and the possibilities of drawing in everyday life.
