König Galerie
Mexico City, Mexico

KÖNIG MEXICO CITY is pleased to present AURORA, an exhibition by multidisciplinary artist Reine Paradis, showcasing self-portrait photographs, paintings, sculptures, and a video installation from her two previous series, Jungle and Midnight. Her signature colors radiate off the surface with the use of deep blues, neon yellows, and bright oranges, all meticulously refined through a painstaking process. This collection of works dives into the surreal world and psyche of Paradis, from the moment of conception, through creation and even its deconstruction.

Paradis examines the transition between extrinsic realities and personal fantasies, one of the continuing themes in her work. While she embraces the constantly changing and fluid nature of the world around us, she also obscures the boundary of what we know to be true. Like an aurora, the use of transparent materials within the works reflects, screens, and absorbs light while creating a curtain-like barrier – one that can hide but also illuminate.

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

    Prisma Art Prize

What we want is to answer a fundamental question in the current artistic context: what does painting mean today?
