Cervantes’s drawings are part of a series of gathered images in an attempt to craft an ultimate visual experience. The works are a collection of unsystematic iconographies and arbitrary subjects, juxtaposed with reoccurring elements of composition. Physics and mechanics, astronomy and landscape, architecture and science fiction along with political and religious paraphernalia all collapse within a chain as an ever-growing vocabulary. These pieces without a linear narrative can be puzzling and lack a certain logical connectivity. Yet they reveal unexpected associations and share an atmosphere of fragmentation, multiplicity and material struggle.
Eduardo Cervantes was born in 1966 in Mexico, and now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York since 2000. Cervantes studied art History at the Instituto Cultural Cabanas (1988-90) in Guadalajara Jalisco Mexico.
