"That which falls outside logical explanation, as you say, became an effective tool for me, as an artist, to speak of those things that I had few facts to prove . . . Until 1996, Guatemalan society did not acknowledge that there even was a war, much less genocide, racism, and economic inequality. Since no official sources acknowledged these realities, delirium could take the place of facts and hard evidence." — #NaufusRamírezFigueroa
Ramírez-Figueroa's exhibition "The House at Kawinal" is on view through September 9.

"I was interested in icons from an early age. In that type of religious painting, forms are given: the size, the colors, the handling of the paint—they are all decided, strictly regulated by tradition. It’s like a machine, but a machine made by monks." —#ThomasBayrle on the presence of religious imagery in his work

"I’ve always had a fondness for collage, for forcing impossible unions, and for trying to somehow get what feels like—before you try putting them together—discordant tones, colors, and images to engage in a conversation."
