Visions of Another World, by David Lach
Comprised of more than 80 landscapes made on fiberglass, a support that has distinguished Lach’s world, not only in Mexico but the world, the showing will be the door into radical universes: “My work is science fiction, through which I place myself in different universes and planets”.
“Color is essential, you can feel the strokes because it’s raw and direct, is like diving into other dimensions” covering different shades of blue, green, ochre, orange and red; as well as the presence of the female figure and, as his permanent murals from the same airport, the inspiration from pre-Columbian topics.
Recognized as the first artist in the world using fiberglass as mainstray, a technique he has termed material painting, Lach shows in the exhibition the culmination of his research about polymers.
“I’ve painted with fiberglass since 1971. I dedicated myself to investigate polymers since then and I think I reached the limit of innovation with the use of methyl methacrylate, which is the finest in plastics, in almost pure acrylic; where my work can prevail outdoors in the sunshine for 300 years”.
David Lach is an artist that has stood out for the use of unconventional materials for the creation of paintings, engravings and murals. Inside his endeavors, he has explored different supports to express the movement, the light and the color, characteristics highlighting his works impressively.
Its material painting allows the work to carry out a double function, as a glass window and as a mural; on one hand, reflecting the filtered light, and on the other hand, being translucent, the painting shines and modifies its intensity according to the light intensity received during the day, thus, he managed to give an unique brightness and color to the painting.
