Bosques, Manchas y Oro
Roberto Munguia's recent works represent three explorations within the artist's oeuvre, each distilled with the color and form that has marked Munguia's work since the beginning of his thirty-year career.The porcelain ceramic forms, Golden Zero have produced a lively collection of small scale rings tinted with gold paint. A series of gouache and casein works on clay board fuse abstract symbols and delicate patterns which reveal a strong personal iconography and small glimpses into a quiet, fertile interior space. Though his black and white ink drawings are a continuation of his ongoing Natural Forms series, the newest works on paper isolate forms on the picture plane. Devoid of color, these organic works recall the ordered beauty of nature.
