When the tide goes out and the mist disappears

11.16.23 – 01.19.24


Daniela Elbahara Gallery presents the collective exhibition “When the tide goes out and the mist disappears.” In this showcase, the infinite and subjective complexity of the artists’ intimacy is explored. Each piece offers a glimpse into their imagination, something intimate and private that, when exhibited, creates a sense of complicity.

Inés Bárcena immerses us in a surreal world where each piece constitutes her life diary, blending family and interpersonal relationships to create scenarios where the earthly and the astral merge.

Jesi Jordan and her surreal automatism take us on an exploration of her psyche through internal dialogues and emotional radiographs rooted in nature and femininity, filled with organic forms and mystical figures. Jesi invites us into her inner garden.

Daniela Villarreal’s photographs reflect a collective intimacy within the universe of the feminine. Villarreal’s contemplative moments capture the body-nature relationship.

Places impregnate our memories, and that’s how Hugo Robledo, through dreamlike and utopian constructions based on Latin American modernist architectures, reconstructs spaces that resonate in our memory.

The essence of Mauricio Villarreal’s works is elegant, nostalgic, and familiar, as well as ethereal. His painting represents moods and spectral presences that resonate with him and the spaces he inhabits.

With anxious figures and somber atmospheres, Ricardo González presents characters rooted in his unconscious. His inspiration comes from the urban environments around him, such as CDMX and New York.

The emotional relationship we develop with objects in our daily lives is encapsulated in Amber Cobb’s work. Her pieces portray the contradictions between human behavior and desire through recognizable elements.

The present and the past coexist in Mario Zoots’ work. Through collage, the artist opens a window to the pop culture of the ’90s, repositioning visual elements like covers of used books, giving them new meaning loaded with nostalgia.

Here the oscillation between figuration and abstraction manifested in this exhibition appears as a vibrant tapestry, woven by threads that reveal vulnerabilities. Embracing the idea that we cannot show the entire essence, but only small fragments that reflect the richness and complexity of artistic intimacy.
