In this solo exhibition, Lucila Santiago works her magic once again with paintings and works on paper. The theme of the exhibition, “Nomads”, refers to the “wandering rock” which somehow mysteriously moves along under its own power in the desert and also in the snow. The chiaroscuro, which is always present, creates atmospheres wherein the rocks acquire characteristics that are different from its nature, much as if they were unidentifiable objects in undefined places.
Lucila is a visual artist who was born in México City. She studied in the UNAM School of Fine Arts. She has received scholarships from FONCA, FONAPAS, and from the Italian Government. Her works include painting, graphics, sculpture, photography, installations and enameling. “Nature is always present in my work, whether it is direct or subtle. I am, however, attracted by man made forms and as time passes these disintegrate into something strange that is far removed from what they were in the beginning. As a consequence, they reincorporate into nature”. Among her collaborations was the Parliament wooden mural, “Las Constituciones”, in México City. Her awards include the prestigious Antonio López Sáenz Award (twice). Residencies in Vermont Studio Center and BluSeed Studios, in the US. She has just been selected to be in "100 Años
de grabados en San Carlos" at El Museo Posada Aguascalientes. With more than 20 individual shows and 150 collective shows in México and abroad. She has been teaching since 1980 in México City and Mazatlán. She is represented by Luna: Arte Contemporaneo in Mazatlán.
