Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Japan of Mexican artist Lucía Vidales. “To Cool the Blue” features eight paintings from 2018 to 2020.

Vidales’ oeuvre is inseparable from the concept of time. For the imagination navigating her artistic practice in the making of paintings, graphics, and sculptures merges fiction and history, where the artist unfolds stories across generations from a first-person narrative. In Vidales’ canvas, the multiple layers of paint display a range of densities and transparencies, which seemingly take on an organic life under the artist’s dynamic brushwork. Its capability in transformations when interacting with light and space further enhances the works’ expressiveness. As a signifier, the rich colors applied in Vidales’ paintings testify to the timely process of human labor in painting, as an attempt to bring inner world enrichment and consolation for wounds of the past and the present.
