THE WORK
Ronny Quevedo’s first solo exhibition with Upfor features new and recent work exploring the invisibility of marginal cultures and physical labor, as they relate to the artist’s personal history and our larger cultural moment. The exhibition title, Every Measure of Zero, is shared by a series of works on paper that relate to the artist’s interest in Edouard Glissant’s Poetics of Relation. Quevedo’s series questions the concept of point of origin, suggesting it as a malleable, unfixed position.

Through a rigorous mark-making and embossing process, Quevedo generates a range of surfaces and colors. He derives patterns and marks from sporting fields, gymnasiums, indigenous land works, pre-Columbian textiles and constellations. Traditional and found materials, such as dress maker’s wax paper, pattern paper and spray paint, are combined with gold and silver leaf, metals redolent with meaning in the history of the Americas.
