Jorge Rosano Gamboa
April – June 2023
Jorge Rosano Gamboa (b. 1984) is an artist based in Mexico whose practice includes utilizing photo, drawing, painting, and installations to discuss the relationship between a moment in time and its representation: the ritual of creating image, its registration, its methods and above all, the instant trapped in the form of image.
Among his most relevant influences are the work of artists such as Hilma af Klint, David Hockney, Elsworth Kelly, Mauricio Alejo, philosophers of the image such as Joan Fontcuberta and Susan Sontag, writers such as Borges, Bioy Casares, and Rebecca Solnit.
He began his studies in the photography seminar at the Centro de la Imagen (2004), INBA Design School (2006-2007), BFA at “la Esmeralda” (2007-2011) and a master at SOMA (2015-2017). Throughout his career he has exhibited individually worldwide such as Germany, England, the US and Mexico. He has been selected twice as part of the photography biennial (2014 and 2018), in Centro de la Imagen and participating in several art fairs such as Salón Acme, FAIN, FAMA, MATERIAL ART FAIR, ZONA MACO in Mexico and international such as: SWAB, Barcelona, Art Lima, PINK in Korea. His work has been shown in museums such as MUCA Roma, MAP and MACQ, Museo Latino Nebraska and he has been invited to more than 10 art residencies in Mexico such as: Casa Wabi, Casa Lü, Project T, Cobertizo and international Neurotitan in Berlin and The Front in New Orleans.
This residency was made possible by an artist residency partnership between 18th Street Arts Center and SOMA through the Call to Dream: The Sam Francis Fellowship.
