Gerardo Monterrubio

For millennia, numerous cultures have used the ceramic medium to record their existence. From these artifacts, we can form an understanding and various interpretations of the cultural paradigms, socio-political practices, mythologies, and the human experience of the worlds that created them.

It is this anthropological aspect that propels my work in its creative endeavor, using the forms as vehicles to compose linear and fragmented narratives.

Altered by the imagination, memory, and the like, my work engages the idea of recording selected aspects of contemporary society, creating spaces for mystery, speculation, and wonder, in methods as old and universal as human creativity itself.
