Art runs through the veins of this famous Mexican family of artists. Starting with Juan Carlos Breceda and Argelia Rosas, it extends to their son Jorge Alberto Aguilar Rojas.
Merida’s SoHo Galleries will feature all three of this family of Mexican artists in an exhibition titled LEGACY beginning Saturday Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. The three artists will be creating a piece together at the opening exhibition starting at 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Each artist’s works reflect the ties that bind them in their use of bold colors, while each practices their own unique style and artistic expression
Juan Carlos Breceda is one of Mexico’s well known artist whose works are exhibited in galleries across the U.S., Mexico, South America and Europe. Rough brush strokes of contrasting colors, discarding depth or perspective, create simple forms filled with energy. Women and animals are the central theme in his work. A woman is repeated. Her enormous eyes, steady gaze and harsh features do not diminish her softness or sensuality. His animals? The rooster, the bird, and the elephant convey simplicity in a real and sometimes magical world.
Argelia Rosas, originally from Jalisco, graduated from the ENPEG La Esmeralda. Through her paintings she transports us to magical towns with churches decorated with green, red and yellow confeti, suns and moons that look behind colorful mountains. Radiating life, Angelia captures the essence of Mexican traditions, the clamor of parties, with her free and precise strokes that convey the joy and character of her Mexican heritage.
JAAR, 28 years old, recently exhibited in Miami’s Art Basel along with galleries worldwide. His works consist of large mixed media in a style that is bold, contemporary with a mix of abstract and figurative. His textural brushstrokes represents his unique style and interpretation of this world. JAAR’s emphasis on faces is an open invitation for viewers. Is the missing mouth a frown, or perhaps a smirk?
This exhibition will run through March 1, 2016.
SoHo Galleries is located at Calle 60 x 41 y 43, Centro Merida.
