Francisco Larios lives and works in Monterrey, Nuevo León. He studied design and specialized in Art History by Universidad La Salle, Laguna.
Larios participated at the XII Bienal “Rufino Tamayo” and Bienal FEMSA, Mexico City, Mexico; VII Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador and was awarded the Prize for Painting Acquisition Reseña de la Plástica de Nuevo León. His work belongs to public and private collection such as: Museum of Contemporary Art de San Diego, California; Museum of Fine Arts de Houston, Texas; USA, Colección FEMSA, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO), Monterrey, México; Museo Rufino Tamayo, Museo Carrillo Gil and Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, Mexico.
In Larios' work landscape is treated conceptually, sometimes, as space where studies of the dreamlike, the bond between human beings and their surroundings, and the nature of objects develop; in other cases as the practice of graphic representation of mathematical, physical, and musical principles which part from the idea of the horizon as divisive line and as a limit. Larios' production is a poetic, ironic and reflexive exploration of the state of our relationship with faith, will, and destiny.
*(Francisco Larios’ works are done by hand with hundreds of layers of gold leaf. The artist’s goal is to allow the work to age along with the collector, which is why some works will appear unbalanced on the color. Parts of the work will have different tones, burnish spots, or small, soft cracks.)
