Jardins will be the second solo exhibition of the artist Raúl Díaz Reyes at the gallery Ponce + Robles. On this occasion, he will show a series of three-dimensional pieces whose the main character is the painting.

The project will be a collaboration with the Brazilian curator Isabella Lenzi and the Madrid musician Abel Hernández, known as “El Hijo”. The exhibition will show the work carried out on the different routes through various gardens in Brazil, the most outstanding being those designed by the landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx.

Raúl Díaz Reyes (Madrid, 1977) has exhibited and received important international scholarshipsin Spain, Germany, the United States, Rusia and Brazil, being in this country where has developed its creation in recent years. Currently, he is represented bygalleries in Madrid, São Paulo and Moscow.

Raúl Díaz Reyes’ work breaks the frontiers between disciplines, taking us into a decisive contemporaneity, in which all languages drift away from the standard and invite us to knock into shape a panoramic look of our surroundings. The union that is established with architecture, and the mash-up of materials, talks to us about cities in relationship with their inhabitants as dynamic systems in constant movement and alteration. This way, there are no dimensional limits, no technical laws: the photograph is contemplated as a sculpture, and the painting gets into it. The results of this reflection on the city as a place for interaction and change question exhibition models, alters codes, and generate new landscapes with multiple  possibilities.
