Steve Turner is pleased to present Timescape, a solo exhibition by Mexico City-based Pablo Rasgado that features three monumental paintings that the artist has been working on since 2015. Each consists of twenty-five to thirty painted passages that Rasgado has removed from public walls around the world including Mexico City, Havana, Barcelona, New York, Philadelphia, and Charlotte, North Carolina, cities where Rasgado has worked for extended periods of time. The sections will be installed side-by-side to produce a single work that spans more than sixteen feet in width and nearly a decade in time. In utilizing the Renaissance technique of strappo to extract painted passages in public space (originally developed to move frescoes from one location to another), Rasgado has created a new painting that functions as a literal landscape of the various source cities. By foregoing allegory or representation, Rasgado assembles a work that is both a record of specific instances of time, place and circumstance and also an evocative image with multiple readings.

Pablo Rasgado (born 1984 Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico) has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner, Los Angeles (2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 & 2017); Piero Atchugarry, Miami (2019); Arratia Beer, Berlin (2012 & 2014); OMR, Mexico City (2013); and Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City (2011). He has also had work in group exhibitions at CAM Raleigh (2014); The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2013); Ex Magazzini di San Cassian, Art Collateral Events, 55th Venice Biennale (2013); Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel (2013); Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2012); and Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City (2010). His work is owned by public collections including Wattis Foundation, San Francisco; Perez Art Museum, Miami; Jumex Collection, Mexico City; and The Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He lives and works in Mexico City.
