Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Alan Kepili's paintings are about feelings. Our emotions are shaped by language. Can an image define feelings? Does this feeling exist even if we don't have images to define it?
The "Awumbuk" series refers to the feeling of sadness that is felt when guests leave. It is associated with exhaustion and flatness. The feeling of such inertia appears when a beloved guest leaves your home. Awumbuk fog floats around. It is only the next day that the inhabitants of the house can resume ordinary family life. The brown and soft lines of the Awumbuk paintings describe the feeling of emptiness, a kind of hazy, suppressed sadness.
Let's pay attention to your feelings. Not only the ones that accompany us after receiving guests at home - Alan Kepili suggests to us with his paintings.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Mexico

Based in: Mexico

Alan is Mexican. He comes from the Huasteks, an indigenous people, a pre-Columbian civilization. He is very proud of his Mesoamerican roots and the Mayan language spoken in northern Veracruz where he is from.
He feels that his artistic duty is to create objects reminding and explaining the past, the civilization of his ancestors, a culture known for textiles, ceramics, buildings decorated with murals and monumental sculptures. He studied sculpture Mexico City but now prefers the easel. Aware of his Indian roots, he creates paintings in an abstract way interpreting ethnic stylistics. in the studio in the provinces.
His inspiration is often Tlazolteotl, the goddess of love, pleasure, fertility, lust, mother of all seasons and rivers, who purifies as much as she presides over sin and death.
