Galería Contempo Announces Two-Artist Exhibition

Vallarta Lifestyles
Feb. 3, 2016

Galería Contempo will hold an opening reception for Luis Espiridion and Pipo Brockmann this coming Friday, February 5, beginning at 6 pm. Both artists will be present.

The sculptural work of Luis Espiridion has a deep and playful feeling. In this exhibition, Espiridion leaves nothing out, he feels the need to show off and does so with slow and meticulous precision, which is only possible in someone who needs to mold his art as life itself

In the dialogue between space and matter, Espiridion’s work is very versatile and affects different aspects of three-dimensionality. From the silhouette of a sculptures that defy their concept of gravity to the notion of volume that is supposed to be a discipline, bronzes and monumental resins, sculptural installations and interventions are part of the repertoire of resources of this Mexican artist with an uninterrupted history of 30 years.

Guillermo Brockmann, better known to his friends as Pipo, was born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara. Being the son of two very creative parents, a Mexican architect and an American painter, he grew up watching his mother paint and his father design homes. In Rhode Island he received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of design and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art.

His paintings are usually done on wood using dabs and knives full of impasto color, brushstrokes and dribbles of loose paint he builds layer upon layer of information, developing and deleting, making bold choices and finally exposing his image. In the end we see surfaces with the same energy authenticity and freshness that his sculptures command. Pipo works in a variety of media on a large non-restrictive scale and his style is deliberately abstract with a bold use of colour.

The theme varies from dogs, animals, trees, and the human figure. Dogs that stretch themselves out across the canvases or look at you with their heads cocked as if reacting to your approach, “Huanacaxtle” trees spread their abundant branches, lush, heavy with foliage and flowers, cocky roosters crow, and a human face that looks back at you.

Galería Contempo is located at Basilio Badillo 252 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. For more information, please click here.

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want."
