Quirarte + Ornelas

Estructura Modular X, 2014. Acrylic on canvas, 120 x 120 cm.

Anabel Quirarte (b. 1980, Mexico City) and Jorge Ornelas (b. 1979, Mexico City), live and work in Mexico City. Quirarte + Ornelas explore the materiality of objects through their work, approaching them through a variety of possibilities apart from their ordinary function. Bringing together several media into the conception of their pieces, they develop an investigation that takes the object to its materic state, reconstructing it into new structures in which form transcends function, a cycle which refers to the sculptoric process, bringing it all together through painting, drawing, objects and installation. Their objects are reinterpretations of daily items and abstract evocations of the artistic exercise, and painting becomes the register of these objects, turning into a means of knowledge. quirarteornelas.com
