Works by Yunuen Esparza

The Grady Alexis Gallery – New York

English

New York, December 10, 2015 – Art is Alive at The Grady Alexis Gallery (at El Taller Latino Americano). Through the Looking Glass, an exhibition of mixed media works by the Mexican visual artist Yunuen Esparza, features her own app that shows how technology is now changing the way we make, see and experience art. The exhibition is on view from December 15, 2015 – January 27, 2016.

Esparza’s Yunuene App (free for download on Apple and GooglePlay), is a cleverly designed program that reads the works and makes them become multi-dimensional, technologically enhanced commentaries that give humor and pause.
Through the aid of a smartphone or tablet, viewers see colorful triangles shoot from the art or see works transform from grief, to a celebration of the hope of life after death – all with a soundtrack that completes her story.

It’s worth saying that the paintings, fiber and sculptural works are all well made as stand alone pieces; the smart phone/ tablet app multiplies the fascination and the possibilities for seeing what the future marriage between 2D/3D art and technology can birth. Esparza says: “I’m giving a new, expanded experience for the viewer and trying to get him/her inside the world of the painting. It’s an art experience like no other. Everything comes alive.” Ultimately it’s a very cool twist for art lovers and technology nuts alike – it’s something very new!

Con la ayuda de un teléfono inteligente o una tableta, los espectadores ven triángulos de colores salir disparados de las obras que se transforman del dolor, a una celebración de la esperanza de vida después de la muerte, todo con una banda sonora que completa su historia.

Vale la pena decir que las pinturas, los bordados y las obras escultóricas están bien hechas como piezas independientes; La aplicación de teléfono inteligente / tableta multiplica la fascinación y las posibilidades de ver cómo puede nacer el futuro matrimonio entre el arte y la tecnología 2D / 3D. Esparza dice: “Estoy brindando una experiencia nueva y ampliada para el espectador y tratando de ponerlo dentro del mundo de la pintura”. Es una experiencia de arte como ninguna otra. Todo cobra vida “. En última instancia, es un giro muy bueno para los amantes del arte y la tecnología, ¡Es algo muy nuevo!
