Internationally renowned Mexican sculptor Sebastian, famous locally for his humungous X sculpture in Juarez and his Aguacero sculpture at the international bridge in El Paso and the new Esfera Cuantica Tlahtolli on the UTEP campus, is showing a something of a retrospective of 53 works at the El Paso Museum of Art .
Called Knot: The Art of Sebastian, it illustrates through a variety of media his ongoing exploration of meshing geometric formations, technology and physical science with sculptural forms. This exploration has been an integral part of his work. When he last gave a talk at EPMA, he demonstrated the importance of geometric forms to work. Obviously this has only deepened and developed over the years and he is now on to Quantic and parallel universe sculptures.
The show opens tomorrow (feb 23) and the next day Sebastian will give a talk open to the general public at 7 pm. On Saturday there will also be a family day with Sebastian.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Consulate General of Mexico in El Paso.-david sokolec
