Alonso Cedillo 's
work can only be defined as post-internet art. As part of the millenial
generation, Cedillo's work focuses entirely on our relationship with
computer screens, the internet, and nature, while living the 21st
2008, Cedillo has been working in a variety of mediums like painting,
sculpture, video, drawing, virtual reality, and software programming,
to engage his viewers with an Earthly reality that makes no difference
between the real and the virtual.
artist's jump from traditional art to post-internet began in 2008 with
his variation series. In them, he relocated classical themes into
videogame scenaries, transforming Rubens' Persephones Abduction into
Mario Bros, and Titian's Europa's rape into Donkey Kong (among others).
A year later, he decided to focus entirely on video production and
started crafting works out of nothing but data.
By 2012, Cedillo realized it was just as foolish to work exclusively
with non electronic methods than to work only with them. Since
then, his works have become too analogic to be electronic, and too
electronic to be analogic, which is of course the reality of our
of that, traditional crafting methods have remained present on
Cedillo's production, as well as the avant-garde ways of the internet.
His work has been collected in Mexico, the United States, Colombia,
Argentina, Austria, and the United Arab Emirates. It has been
exhibited at the NRML festival in Monterrey (2013) and was featured at
Donaufestival (2013) and Transitio MX (2015) by Fran Ilich.
