"Mala Energia" by Adrian Ordaz 

February 2- February 27, 2019

A series of chalk pastel drawings have been created to capture Mexican cultural superstitions passed from generation to generation. The art style is expressionism, rendering still-life objects as the epicenter of bad energies that change or direct the course of a person’s life to a fate of sickness, illness, misfortune or death.
I find it fascinating how as a member of a family whose progenitors read signs and practice these superstitions tend to be old wives tales to myself. I have translated these oral traditions into visual representations to keep them as records of a generation, along with its cultural traditions, that is fading away. -Adrian Ordaz
