Visiting an exhibition by Leonardo Nierman is penetrating a space that invites us to dream in infinities, to discover exteriors and interiors of cosmic worlds. The exhibition Genesis de un Sueno (Genesis of a Dream) mounted at the Contemporary University Museum of Art in Mexico City conveyed such sensations to visitors. Running from May through August of 1996, it featured three hundred of Nierman's works spanning forty years and was reinstalled by popular demand through January 1997. Its beauty and mystery are now captured in this elegant volume.
Nierman: Genesis de un Sueno is a celebration of the painting, sculpture, and tapestry of this prolific and visionary artist. Dazzling four-color plates capture both the rich detail and the striking colors of individual works, while other photographs, often in gatefold, reflect the juxtaposition of painting and sculpture at the exhibition. To turn the pages of this book is to be transported into a dreamworld that recreates the dawning of the universe.
Although much of the Western world has sustained a simplistic impression of Mexican painting, Nierman's work deals in compelling abstract images that defy categorization. It has played a leading role in the extraordinary drama that is modern Mexican art and is now represented in museums around the world. Nierman: Genesis de un Sueno is an unsurpassed testament to the talent of this extraordinary artist.
