Pablo Vargas Lugo

The work of Pablo Vargas Lugo takes elements from various disciplines, such as astronomy, cartography and archaeology. Making drawings, sculptures, paintings and installations, he develops visual and conceptual games that refer to language, to the conventions of certain systems of measurement, to millenary traditions. 

Combining the super-flat quality of paper with three-dimensional notions, Vargas Lugo explores the element of mystery within writing, the inscription of a word, of a stellar map, of a landscape, or of that, which takes us to ancient ideas of the sacred. Through the use of humor, his images transform these cultural conventions into mundane elements, bringing them closer to us, both common and extraordinary. 

Vargas Lugo has exhibited extensively in Mexico, Europe and the United States. His exhibitions include Austin Museum of Art, Austin, TX, Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, Ohio, Orange Country Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California, and the Sculpture Center, Long Island, NY. He was included in the 2004 26th Biennial de São Paulo, The 2002 Biennial de Montréal, Montreal, Quebec, and the Phoenix Triennial (2001).
