Convergence: of Time and Place; New works by Vicente Telles

SWC Exhibition

August 28, 2020 - September 27, 2020

Collaborations and memory form the focus of Vicente Telles’ latest solo exhibition, Convergence: of Time and Place. “I began my painting career on a chair my grandfather made,” says the artist. “It was a collaboration of sorts: his craftsmanship literally supported my creative practice.”

Known for work that encourages people to grapple with distinctions between words like “traditional” and “contemporary”, Telles uses his mastery of santero techniques to explore subjects that are modern even if they might appear anachronistic. “A santo made in a traditional style can still have relevance today just as immigration issues can be a part of santero culture. The best way to move tradition forward is for it to evolve,” says Vicente.
