This project comes after the success of Vidales in New York, with Cold sweat, presented under the shelter of Proxyco Gallery, specialized in the art of Latin America.
This exhibition attracted academic and collector market attention, achieving the total sale of the exhibited work and generating an international waiting list. According to the directors of Proxyco Gallery, Alexandra Morris and Laura Sáenz, including Latin American talent in a New York environment “represents quite a challenge.”
Morris, the creator’s representative in New York, explains that “the juxtaposition of Vidales’ work with that of the painter José Clemente Orozco will create a fascinating dialogue seen through the eyes of a young artist, with much to say about the role that has taken the woman in painting, as a creator.”
He adds that “it is opening a window of images and forms in which not only the artist’s feelings are shown, but also Mexican culture and our culture in relation to others, in this increasingly globalized world.”
Vidales is a graduate of the National Institute of Fine Arts. He lived for a while in Hong Kong, but he always had a passion for the history of Mexico and now this is an essential part of his work.
