The UTSA Department of Art and Art History presents Jorge Yázpik's "From Sacred Geographies to Modern Topographies," the Mexican sculptor’s first solo exhibition in the United States. From semi-precious stones and crystal, to silver and steel, Yázpik’s wide-ranging work reflects a minimalist aesthetic that draws upon pre-Columbian art and artifacts. As a former student of Ruptura generation artist Manuel Felguérez, Yázpik’s creations are a nod to Mexican Geometrism and the creative challenges posed by abstract art. “I have known his work for a long time, and wanted to show how abstraction is continuing a very productive discourse in post-conceptual times,” said curator Gabriella Boschi Scott. “It is about the mastery of the medium and its language.”
