Vicente González Mimica

///Vicente González Mimica

In González’s Del Sur series, the desire to drive is clear, while the destination is less certain. By being location-ambiguous, he brings to light this concern with education as an instrument of uprooting. In Valparaiso, González becomes a street poet. Lost in the anonymous crowd, he seeks to rescue individualities. From his fascination with faces comes fugitive visions, and where he fixes his gaze generates a familiar bond with his heart, allowing him to access another person’s spirit. González is subtly complicit with his subjects, leading them to reveal individualities through sharp contrasts of shapes
and forms.
