Pablo Rasgado reconfigures material from everyday life into new abstractions. Much of his past work has been made from painted public walls, some extracted from busy city streets, others from temporary museum exhibitions. Sometimes the walls have political or social content. Sometimes they simply contain an image that the artist wants to capture and present in a new way. Whatever the source, Rasgado seeks to represent a frozen moment. In the case of the Unfolded Architecture paintings, they represent specific moments within a museum’s history and indeed in art history.
Rasgado has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner, Los Angeles, Arratia Beer, Berlin, OMR, Mexico City, and Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City. He has also had work in group exhibitions at CAM Raleigh, North Carolina, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Ex Magazzini di San Cassian, Art Collateral Events, 55th Venice Biennale, Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel, Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City and Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City.
