Closing Show Talk in Pasadena

If you are in Los Angeles,  Thursday April the 18th from 6 to 9 PM, I will have a talk about my recent art work on exhibit at: 615 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, CA 91101 Telephone: (626) 789-0424, E-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it In Tijuana, the city where I was born, like in most cities of Mexico, iron work installed on windows is used to protect houses from intruders. The tradition is making the iron work very decorative using the curved line inspired by all versions of the baroque. 
Ever since I was a kid I noticed and admired this beautiful iron work and by observing this usage created in my mind the idea that the curved line create shields to protect you with a beautiful work of steel. 
The iron work on windows protects us so we can be completely free and secure inside. In this work I have stripped the curved line from any utilitarian function, elevating it to the conceptual idea that the curved line is a soft and charmed way to escape to freedom, and the straight line is the one that entraps us with the argument of practicality.
PS: In Tijuana, Ituarte with the collaboration of iron worker Jesús Flores and car painter Jorge Lizárraga created the wall sculptures.
