Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is pleased to announce our participation in The Art Show, organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), at the Park Avenue Armory in New York from November 2-6. In Booth C9, the gallery will present a solo exhibition of recent drawings by gallery artist Gustavo Díaz [b. 1969, Argentina/Lives in Houston].
Díaz researches the behavior of complexity and presents his findings through intricate, abstract works on paper and installations that map the conceptual connections between theories such as Chaos Theory, Dissipative Structures, fuzzy logic, and the concept of networks. In his recent series Imaginary Flight Patterns, Díaz contemplates the idea of confronting silence in drawings that resemble the flight patterns of thousands of birds in the sky. As art historian Dr. Nikki Moore writes concerning this latest series, "Choosing the somatic, the artist’s careful articulations of line, point, and gesture eschew the illusion of realism only to show us the world all the more profoundly...Diaz maps fields of uncertainty and spontaneous synchronizations not only in music, but in the act of drawing itself. Lines that never connect form shapes that never truly appear."
Díaz's work is included in the permanent collections of Balanz Contemporánea, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Juana Manso 999, Buenos Aires, Argentina; the Fine Arts Museum System of San Francisco (Legion of Honor, de Young Museum, & Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts), San Francisco, California, USA; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), Texas, USA; Noble Energy Collection, Houston, Texas, USA; Proyecto A Collection, Buenos Aires, Argentina; and The Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology, Houston, Texas, USA.
