Tomás Díaz Cedeño (Mexico b.1983) is a Mexico City-based artist whose artistic production explores the proportion between the natural and the artificial, as well as the continuous interaction between empirical belief systems and scientific methodologies. His practice examines the expressive range material objects can embody when forced into previously unknown relationships. His physically evocative formal explorations connote an inherent mysticism, recalling alternative representation of the body, nature’s organic structures, and amulets of peripheral systems of believes. He examines these relations through a delicate, tenuous —even grotesque— visual language rooted in a committed, intimate dialogue with the materials he uses.
