Press Release

Mexican artist, Apolo Anton Arauz, turns urban encounters into clairvoyant experiences. Found objects become strange portals into the mystique of a city’s still poignant but forgotten collection of aging buildings and discarded items. Arauz’s photographs imbue the rough side of a boxcar or the svelte floor of a tennis court with a mysterious vigor, suggesting that, if we look closely, we will realize that everything has a compelling, hidden history.


Arauz collects objects from the sites he photographs and encases these mementos in Resin Polyester Plastic. The objects float in a resin sea, physically actualizing the experiences the photographs represent. Arauz thus adds tangible, physical substance to the transient moments in his images. The inanimate objects, surfaces, and structures in Arauz’s work become emotively expressive actors. They stand in for human feelings, becoming the embodiments of the intangible sensations we feel throughout our lives but are unable to express. Arauz believes in observation. His ability to remain alert to the life around him is what makes his work constantly enthralling.
