Tomás Díaz Cedeño

Tomás Díaz Cedeño (Mexico b.1983) is a Mexico City-based artist whose 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, or amulets of peripheral systems of belief; and he examines these relations through a delicate, tenuous —even grotesque— visual language rooted in a committed, intimate dialogue with the materials he uses.

 

Díaz Cedeño’s recent projects include an artist residency at Casa Wabi in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, MX; Usando este cuerpo, pensando en la fuente a solo exhibition at PEANA, Monterrey, MX; Approaching Abstraction at Blain Southern, London, UK; Vessels, a solo exhibition at BWSMX Gallery; Mexico City, MX; Pintura Reactiva at Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City, MX. Díaz Cedeño’s upcoming exhibitions in 2021 include Soft Water Hard Stone, curated by Margot Norton and Jamillah James at the New Museum, New York, US and a group exhibition at Museo MARCO in Monterrey, MX.
