Tomás Díaz Cedeño

Tomás Díaz Cedeño (1983, Mexico City) 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; Dearly Disillusioned a group show at McNichols Civic Center Building, Denver, US; 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; and an upcoming group presentation in 2021 at Museo MARCO in Monterrey, MX.
