Principle of Uncertainty
 
Museum of Modern Art
 
Mexico City
 
from April 29 to August 1, 2004
 
 
On April 29th the painter Beatriz Ezban presents an individual exhibition of her recent work at the Modern Art Museum in Mexico City. The exhibition comprises more than 35 large-format works in which the artist explores the possibilities of contemporary painting.

Abstraction is the leitmotiv in Beatriz Ezban’s work and in her most recent series the abstract condition is exacerbated: each picture is multiplied, is fissioned, transmutes itself, never remains the same. Large canvases painted in silver, crossed by occasional lines that only intensify the mutable condition of the paintings. Primitive seas hiding the genius Proteus, owner of all wisdom and most difficult to apprehend. Such is the nature of Principle of Uncertainty, an exhibition that remits us to the concept of the impossibility of determining the momentum of a particle. Trying to pin down an image in this polysemic work is mere fantasy and to no avail.

The artist has over 30 individual exhibitions and over 80 collective ones, including national and international exhibitions, from which her work was selected to form part of the Permanent Collection at the Presidential Residence of Los Pinos and of the Modern Art Museum in Mexico City. On several occasions she has won prizes and incentives granted by the CONACULTA in national contests, the most recent one being her inclusion in the National System of Artistic Creators.

Beatriz Ezban is one of the principal exponents of abstract painting in Mexico and this exhibition is an excellent opportunity to enjoy her work.
