Ronny Quevedo’s solo exhibition, Every Measure of Zero, features new and recent work exploring the invisibility of marginal cultures and physical labor, as they relate to the artist’s personal history and our larger cultural moment. Quevedo questions the concept of point of origin, suggesting it as a malleable, unfixed position.

Through a rigorous mark-making and embossing process, Quevedo generates a range of surfaces and colors. He derives patterns and marks from sporting fields, gymnasiums, indigenous land works, pre-Columbian textiles and constellations. Traditional and found materials, such as dress maker’s wax paper, pattern paper and spray paint, are combined with gold and silver leaf, metals redolent with meaning in the history of the Americas.
