Horacio Quiroz’s rich, disconcerting oil paintings manipulate and toy with the human form. In an upcoming show at Booth Gallery, “Polarities,” his latest experimentations are displayed, whether on the canvas or in an installation of works on paper (including poems, sketches, and more). Quiroz appeared in Hi-Fructose Volume 46 and was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Horacio Quiroz’s oil paintings bend and contort the body with both delicate and disconcerting results. The Mexico City-based artist began his career as an artist after spending several years in advertising. Since 2013, the artist says been attempting to “explore the oscillation between love and fear as primary antagonistic vital forces, using the human body as a tool to represent the constant movement of our reality.”
