Artists: Cynthia Jáuregui
Born in Monterrey, Mexico in 1968.
Between 1987 and 1992 she studies architecture and discovers her interest in three-dimensional models where she experiments with various materials. She plays with light effects leaving unexpected windows which grant visual access to a space's interiors. In 1994 she begins working with clay, participating in workshops and exhibitions. She is inspired by spaces inhabited by life as well as spaces abandoned by life- construction and erosion. In her ceramic she approaches the latter. She creates patterns of washed-out, organic forms and rock. But the structure always persists. It resists the effects of time. It doesn’t break down nor fall apart. It always maintains itself. She explores the order of organic and inorganic structure. In her murals prevail a mathematic organization like that of crystals. Although there is erosion, the strength to maintain structure and firmness in the material world persists. From here stems the impression of an "almost-religious" power in her work. She arrives in Oaxaca in 1999, a territory where she daily encounters eroded buildings and mountains on which time leaves its traces and where the labor of the earth is to be felt every day, just as the energies that maintain life and its structures. Currently she works as a ceramist and as an architect, dedicated to both professions in equal measure.
