Ricardo Mazal
Mexican,

Born in Mexico City in 1950 , Ricardo Mazal lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico and New York. Currently exhibited his work in prestigious international galleries in the United States, Canada , Mexico , Hong Kong and Singapore. During the last decade, has had 11 Mazal solo exhibitions in museums in the United States and Mexico, including 4 retrospective of his work at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey (2000), Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City (2006), Queretaro Museum of Art (2009), Abstract Art Museum Manuel Felguerez (2010), as well as thematic exhibitions at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art ( 2006), the National Museum of Anthropology (2004-2005) and the Cultural Center Indianilla Mexico City (2012) among others.

Mazal's work is strongly influenced by the visual language and culture of Mexico. He is fixated with the potential to explore far into the fabric of the canvas emphasizing pure line and color and has accomplished the need for, the “spiritual in art”. Text and individual lettering become an integral component of the image. Mazal’s work also explores the process of visual perception as it takes form in the human consciousness. His paintings depict the passage of time, not by illustrating events but by leaving their residue to dissipate in space like a still photograph of a speeding object blurred to abstraction. When attempting interpretation, the viewer must abandon one-dimensional thoughts and search further into the many dimensions that are prevalent in the art to grasp the vastness of depth and incandescent beauty that Mazal creates.
