Mexico: Jorge Yázpik | Sculptures + Mixed Media

Month of May

In over three decades of artistic creation, Jorge Yázpik’s trajectory has stitched a seam between geometric abstraction and minimalism. Embracing dualities, the artist often juxtaposes precisely incised negative spaces against the organic contours of natural materials, the sturdiness of rock or obsidian with a sense of movement and creation of space. At once spiritual, conceptual, and architectonic, his stone sculptures echo ancient art forms while simultaneously embracing contemporary concepts.
