Hector Carmona Miranda (b. 1979 in Mexico City) was encouraged to pursue the arts from a young age. He move to El Paso in 2009 and Austin in 2011.  After spending a decade working as a designer and 3D modeler, he graduated with his B.F.A. in Studio Art (emphasis on Photography) from the University of Texas at Austin.

His work explores how traditional materials such as metals fit together to form new materials such as 3D shapes.  Coming from a long line of metal workers and metallurgists is what prompted him to experiment with blacksmithing in combination with 3D printing.  After he finishes a piece, he uses lighting and a camera (digital and film) to enhance the different patterns and footprints that each of the materials and techniques produces with the final product being the photographic image.

Lys Santamaría was born in Colombia and raised in both Canada and the United States. Her beadwork is primarily inspired by her travels abroad and by influential women in her life. She enjoys using traditional beading techniques that reflect her cultural background. The repetitive motion of her work allows her time to meditate and each bead is woven with intention.

Galería Ethra 
Londres 54, col. Juárez, México DF

14 de abril inauguración

desde las 19h30

Desde el 15 de abril hasta el 17 de junio de 2016

La exposición, que además será la más grande muestra del artista hasta el momento, se 

presentará en las cinco salas de galería Ethra del 15 de abril al 17 de junio. Esta obra 

continua los extensivos experimentos del artista con la abstracción, los garabatos, la poesía 

la música psicodélica ; temas que se ven reflejados en su arte mientras expande los límites 

que van más allá de los convencionalismos y la inmediatez con la que vemos las cosas. 

La naturaleza multifacética de la obra de Stéphane Ducret combina piezas al óleo, spray, 

pasteles, dibujos, collages, fotografía e instalaciones, y es a través de esta 

multidisciplinariedad que ha creado gran diversidad de obra con raíces complejas y 

coherentes que revelan su capacidad artística.

Su obra tiene como inspiración temas autobiográficos, de la historia del arte o sociológicos y 

puede entenderse como “post-estructuralista” – movimiento filosófico originado por Jean

 Baudrillard, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault y Gilles Deleuze entre otros –. El rango

 visual aparentemente “incomprensible” de su obra incorpora un estado esquizofrénico post-

todo de fragmentación perpetual y de síntesis. Su trabajo involucra una combinación de

 investigación filosófica y material, con un especial interés en las teorías del transcurso del 

tiempo, the Beat Generation y el rock psicodélico, que consiste en una aparente e 

interminable reutilización de diferentes técnicas y medios.

Changarrito with Josué Ramírez (Rawmirez) / Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin, TX !!

Changarrito with Josué Ramírez (Rawmirez) 
Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin, TX 

Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 12 – 3 pm
Sunday, February 21, 2016 from 12 – 3 pm
Saturday, February 27, 2016 from 12 – 3 pm
Sunday, February 28, 2016 from 12 – 3 pm

Josué Ramírez (Rawmirez) is a border artist living and practicing in the Rio Grande Valley. Originally from Ciudad Mante Tamaulipas, Mexico, Rawmirez migrated to the US alongside his family as a child. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A in Mexican American Studies. Rawmirez focuses on stenciling as his main artistic method, but also creates works on canvas as well as producing street art. Additionally, his creations are not limited to a flat surface and include sculptures and mixed media pieces. In his work, Rawmirez explores themes such as sexuality and varying identities, while referencing popular culture, flora, traditional Mexican imagery, bilingualism, graffiti culture and patterns. By mixing and intersecting the meanings and definitions of these references through various channels Rawmirez reimagines and reinterprets his space and self in la frontera.

Each month a new artist is invited to display and sell their artwork on the Changarrito cart in front of the Mexic-Arte Museum. Visitors are able to purchase artworks and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the artist.
