Soho BrecenaArt runs through the veins of this famous Mexican family of artists: Juan Carlos Breceda, Argelia Rojas, and their son Jorge Alberto Aguilar Rojas (JAAR).

SoHo Galleries is fortunate to have all three members of this family of Mexican artists featured in their LEGACY exhibition, opening on Saturday, January 30th at 7 pm.

Each artist’s works reflect the ties that bind them together, in their use of bold colors; while each practices his/her own unique style and artistic expression.

Juan Carlos Breceda is one of México’s most well known artists, whose works are exhibited in galleries across the U.S., Mexico, South America and Europe. Rough brush strokes of contrasting colors, discarding depth or perspective, create simple forms filled with energy.  Women and animals are the central theme in his work.  A woman is repeated.  Her enormous eyes, steady gaze and harsh features do not diminish her softness or sensuality.  His animals? The rooster, the bird, and the elephant convey simplicity in a real and sometimes magical world.

Argelia Rojas, originally from Jalisco, graduated from the ENPEG La Esmeralda art school.  Through her paintings she transports us to magical towns with churches decorated with green, red, and yellow confetti, suns and moons that look behind colorful mountains, and watermelons radiating life.  Argelia captures the essence of Mexican traditions, the clamor of parties, with her free yet precise strokes that convey the joy and character of her Mexican heritage.

JAAR, only 28 years old, recently exhibited in Miami’s Art Basel as well as in galleries worldwide.  His works consist of large mixed media: bold and contemporary, with a mix of abstract and figurative. His textural brush strokes represent his unique style and interpretation of this world. JAAR’s emphasis on faces is an open invitation for viewers: is the missing mouth a frown? Or perhaps a smirk?

All three artists will be at the opening of the exhibition on Saturday, January 30th, 2016, from 7 pm to 10 pm. The exhibition will run through March 1, 2016.
