This is the first solo exhibition at the gallery by Mexican artist Bayrol Jimenez. While radically disparate, Jiménez's work is driven mainly by drawing. He has an enormous appetite for paper, covering it most of the time with ink and acrylic paint. The ease of his manner and the freedom of the formal treatment he accords his compositions unquestionably have their roots partially in the Mexican tradition of drawing that's virtuosic, visually imposing and often marked by frank social commentary; an approach that inevitably conjures up such major figures of the first half of the twentieth century as Leopoldo Méndez (1902-1969) and Feliciano Peña (1915-1982), to name but two.
