Paco Pomet: Beginnings

2525 Michigan Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90404
Apr 03, 2 PM - 2:30 PM — ends May 08, 2021
A fresh, or at least another start, a new page, a chance to try new things, or familiar ones but armed with experience, the beginnings are usually seen as an opportunity and therefore a positive predicament. Yet, the cold truth is that they are merely a logical follow-up of endings, a term with downright opposite connotation. And this interconnectivity of the beginning being a consequence of an ending, is what prompted Paco Pomet to choose such a momentous title for his 5th solo show with Richard Heller Gallery. Seduced by the idea of approaching this body of work with a vision of commencement instead of closing one, Beginnings is the artist's response to the profound awareness of finitude, limitation, uncertainty, and precariousness in times of the global pandemic.

Born in 1970, Granada, Spain. Lives and works in Granada, Spain.
