The William Turner Gallery is pleased to present, Javier Pelaez : At the Front Door of a Stone. Based in Mexico City, Javier Pelaez creates work that considers the myriad possibilities involved with the construction and perception of reality. Depicting enigmatic imagery that can be construed as simultaneously materializing and deconstructing, Pelaez’s pictorial language is set in an incessant swing between opposing states of being.
This exhibition will include a number of new paintings on canvas and panel, as well as a series of paintings on paper that Pelaez completed during a recent stay in Los Angeles. Javier Pelaez was born in 1976. His work has been exhibited extensively in Mexico. This exhibition marks his first show with William Turner Gallery, as well as his first show in Los Angeles. He currently lives and works in Mexico City.
