“Gold Series” Exhibition

“Gold Series” is an exhibition that presents the most recent work of Carlos Mauricio Pliego, done in Toluca, State of Mexico. The central theme of this series is rediscovering his homeland:
“They are illustrated elements, some that I have had since childhood, others that I found in Merida, and others that were already here.
It’s about awareness of being a family after so much hunger.
A portrayal of transition. Of what we were before.” CM Pliego.

The change to a studio with more lighting has allowed him to work more on his technique of loose strokes and blotches that gradually reveal characters or other elements of a vaguely defined environment. True to his style, he adds signs or letters that seem to come from his mind while he paints.

The exhibition includes works done a few years earlier, so one can appreciate the evolution of his work.
