From April 8 to May 9, 2015, L&L ARTS presents PABLO GUARDERAS: I AM THAT I AM, a solo exhibition at 317 Grand Gallery, NYC.
I AM THAT I AM will feature a new body of photographic works by Pablo Guarderas.
"The central theme in my work is the exploration within the Self. It is the central theme in my life and I see it in many aspects in my work. I want to inspire a journey within, and to evoke different aspects of that state. Silence, peace, beauty. In I AM THAT I AM, I see a map to the within that highlights several states of that journey. I use sacred geometry as a symbol of the Divine and as an aim in itself" Pablo Guarderas
Since his early exhibitions, Guarderas has been juxtaposing and contrasting aesthetic languages that shatter the surface of matter, drawing the viewer inward towards an alternative spiritual reality. In the two large scale works featured in I am that I am (analog photographic and mixed media works), the individual panes coalesce into a window offering a view of bodies in motion, the many facets of a universal truth projecting on our own inner landscape. Guarderas' beautifully stylized and vividly constructed images of female bodies question relations and boundaries between body and space, performance and photography, matter and Self-consciousness.
Born in Quito, Ecuador in 1964, Pablo Guarderas lives and work in New-York. He exhibited across America and Europe, and recently at the Biennial Cuenca, Ecuador and the Whitechappel Gallery, London. Pablo Guarderas work is featured in the following public collections: Victoria & Albert Museum, UK ; Citi Bank, UK ; Kodak Collection, UK ; Sisley Paris, France.
