      Art Gallery Opening: Adrian Esparza, yarn constructions

      Adrian Esparza first drew international attention through his postmodern repurposing of the traditional Mexican sarape, a kind of physical metaphor for the artist’s own cultural transmutations. In 2003, then Associate Curator of Contemporary Art, Suzanne Weaver, included Esparza in the seminal Come Forward: Emerging Art in Texas exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art, where a large audience was first introduced to the border-based artist. Over the last decade, Esparza’s powerful, yet delicate blanket-derived yarn constructions have evolved into geometric forms with ties to minimalist artists like Kenneth Noland, Agnes Martin, and Ellsworth Kelly. These wall-dependent works often reference architecture, the landscape, or “alien” shapes, depicting dramatic one and two-point perspectives to form striking dimensionality and volume.
