Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino presents eight works by Mexico City-based contemporary artist Gabriel de la Mora (b. 1968, Mexico) in an online viewing room hosted by Hook Selects.

De la Mora began his career as a practicing architect before redirecting his focus to visual art. Since the early 2000s, he has collected detritus and ephemera ranging from hair to found photographs and shoe soles to painted ceilings. Much of de la Mora's production focuses upon the intimate functions of objects that, outlasting their usefulness, have been discarded.

He transforms these objects using meticulous craftsmanship, calling attention to their original uses while making conceptual investigations into the actions of time upon them and the hidden narratives they contain. As curator Willy Kautz notes, “de la Mora updates the minimalist/conceptual optic to reveal the intimate and personal within the universal convention of modernist abstraction.”
