Sergio Suárez (1995) is a Mexican born, Atlanta based visual artist. He uses the mediums of printmaking, painting and sculpture to explore language and the structure of materiality in relation to narrative and contradiction. He often borrows small parts of complex systems of thought and production in an attempt to create a space balanced in between tenses. His work has been shown here and there around Atlanta, in spaces like the Ernest G. Welch gallery at GSU, the Abernathy Arts Center, Pulp Gallery, Noch 8 Gallery, and in the Studio 9 of the Atlanta Contemporary. Internationally he’s shown at the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair in London, and the Ionian Arts Center in Greece; where he also attended two residencies. Upcoming shows include Corta Distamcia, set to open on May 9th at the Consulado General de Mexico en Atlanta, and the Haugesund Internasjonal Relief Festival in Norway, opening May 10th, 2019. His work is also included in the SGCI archives of the Zuckerman Museum. He lives and works in Atlanta GA where he is pursuing a BFA in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking from Georgia State University.
