Through the multiplicity of paintings and materials that gather in the series "Horror Vacui II", Armando de la Garza makes us sharers in his autobiographical dissolution in which the body (real and symbolic) suffers its own "small death in parts", a dismemberment in which the symbol religious, dying body and animal remains collapse with ironic personal fetishes and high-fashion accessories in a game where the funny has fun with death. An autobiographical dissolution that although it seemed fundamental in the uniqueness of this exhibition, actually comes through different works of the artist in which constant autobiographical elements have managed to form a forceful personal narrative.
Born in the city of Monterrey Nuevo León in 1973, Armando de la Garza began his painting studies at a very young age. But it was not until 1995 that he finished studying architecture and began his professional career in the art world.
