Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The title of the series of paintings by Alan Kepili refers to unique astronomical phenomena. Space observations have revealed a giant fountain of molecular gas powered by a black hole. The decrease and outflow of cold molecular gas are part of the same gigantic process. These unprecedented observations shed new light on the life cycle of galaxies. Scientists speculate that the process may be key to understanding the formation of galaxies. Alan Kepili refers the observed phenomenon to the painting process. The paintings consist of small elements, creating a colorful composition based on a distinctive drawing. The images simulate infinite space. The rhythm of the elements creates vibrant surfaces with subdued, balanced colors. Alan Kepili plays in his paintings with space and light - two elements forming our microcosm.

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.
