"This piece was created for a release of a book "Farce" which is about narco violence. It tries to explain the utopic war with the government and the cartels. The concept of this piece is to try to explain in a simple form what happens in Mexico. Basically, the idea is a dance, like a ritual for a created lie. This piece highlights the lies the government tells us." - Saner

About the Artist

Location: Mexico City, Mexico

"His formation and exposure to massive pop art since his childhood attaches Saner to the generation of artists that can freely wander between graffiti, graphic design, painting and drawing.

In these fields he makes clear the contrasting influences that build him as a contemporary artist: the comic and other manners of illustration, going through expressionism, naif art, surrealism and also that sort of advertising used on street walls and store windows that give such a characteristic urban look to the third-world landscape.

I would like to stand out another characteristics of his work that, since my point of view, give sense to his artistic proposal, like his chromatic palette. It is sober and harmonic at the same time, spiced with tender touches of textures that work to strengthen his authentic preoccupation laid on offer us a brilliant and closed stroke but deeply dynamic and expressive.

However, two important aspects of his artwork are, in first place, his clever decision of taking us closer symbolic and iconographic elements from Mexican popular tradition, fraught by fictions, emblems, heroes and local demons. Saner can transport them to our time after giving them an intense mystery touch, a subtle perversion and a weird but stimulating sense of humor.

On the other side, Saner deposits into his work a hint of personal introspection that pervades his scenes, conferring them to an oneriric sense at time he gets narrative, timeless, ethereal and funny images.

So, simplicity and variation, tradition and surprise, aggression and tenderness, simplicity and fun, boldness and subtlety, immediacy and constancy, far from established in his work as paradoxical forms, all they are configured at the end like a fluid dialog. This affirmation confirms in Saner his knowledge about direction of the times he is living and his accomplishment with the social and cultural context that raised him up, aware that these ingredients will let him forge a durable stand in the volatile dynamics of contemporary art." - Alfredo Matus
