\n

As in earlier bodies of work\, Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia's new work is informed by sources ranging from personal anecdotes to art- historical and ethnographic motifs. And\, the most recent body of work is a lso guided by the idea that abstraction and representation are two sides of the same coin\; that every representation is an abstraction and every abst raction is a representation. &ldquo\;Even the most self-referential tautolo gies in art represent a certain ideology\, education system\, even class. I also think the most direct representational imagery is abstracted to a deg ree through it&rsquo\;s mannerism\, style\, and presentation\,&rdquo\; says Hurtado Segovia.

\n

Christianity continues to be an influence in Hurtado S egovia&rsquo\;s new work. The imagery moves away from a readily coded Prote stant visual language\, and toward pop culture\, but still speaks about Chr istianity and not religion or spirituality as a vague general mood. He is i nterested in how various peoples have interpreted their Christian faith and in the many ways it is represented through ritual and artifacts.

\n

Includ ed are several new Papel tejido (woven paper construction) works\, one his largest ever\, however\, the exhibition is mostly sculptural. Feat ured are a series of tall wooden poles covered in woven cord emblazoned wit h various geometric shapes\, words and symbols called Cetros\, res embling scepters or staffs. Presented alone or in clusters\, these sculptur es are reminiscent of pagan totemic artifacts and abstracted enchanted fore sts.

\n
