“Excess of Sleep Produces Monsters”, David Castillo Gallery, Miami Beach, FL, September 15 – November 19, 2016
The exhibition presents a series of new works by Miami based Mexican artist Pepe Mars in a solo show featuring his paintings, collages and installation. The exhibition presents itself as a manual for generating alterity. Experienced through doorways, windows, and fabrics, the exhibition assumes the features of a dream house in dual sense of joyous desire and urgent reimagining. The exhibition also serves as a warning against the behemoths that already pass unnoticed in the ‘sleep of reason.’ True to the artist’s oeuvre, this material thought bubble is captivatingly whimsical.
