“In a way, my dream is to one day make a world that is as fantastic and perfect as a tree.”—Gabriel Orozco.

Thirty years after his first exhibition at the gallery in 1993, Galerie Chantal Crousel is delighted to welcome Gabriel Orozco’s eighth solo exhibition in Paris, with a selection of new works forming like a diary compiled between Tokyo and Mexico City, where he currently lives and works. Drawings and watercolors, temperas on canvas and wood paintings with one common approach will be presented: that of the imprinting of landscapes and plants originating from his gardens in Acapulco and Mexico City. 

Gabriel Orozco is an artist in constant movement, refusing the immobility of the studio. He draws his inspiration from the different places where he lives and travels. His new productions result from his recent travels between Japan and his native Mexico. Combining painted and drawn geometric forms and colored plant imprints, they testify to a new profusion in the artist’s work. Briony Fer, an art historian specializing in his work, explains his creative process in the following terms: “Gabriel Orozco makes his work out of where he lives, using local materials and often drawing on traditional artisanal practices but of course art can—and often has—been made in one place but out of another, that is, in imaginary as well as actual dialogues with its own origins.”*
