inigo sesma + pdp gallery : unpaved paradise . . .
proudly presents ’unpaved paradise’, a new solo exhibition by spanish artist - and @konventzero
alum - inigo sesma @issesma.
sesma reveals an intimate exploration of memories, feelings, and adventures collected during a recent off-road journey from ny to cali . . .
this body of work honors the memory of the beat generation, who in the 1950’s pioneered the artist’s pilgrimage from east to west. sesma draws inspiration from vignettes discovered against the backdrop of small villages, colorful motel lights, abandoned farms in the middle of nowhere, derelict cars tucked behind rural houses, countless diners, and various nomadic communities encountered along the way . . . ‘unpaved paradise’ is the culmination of sesma’s experience on the road less traveled. says the artist: ‘unpaved refers to all the raw elements I found on my way, both souls and places. paradise is that untouchable thing which makes them especially attractive’ . . .
