“Astonishment, admiration, strangeness, marvel; in a word not yet known, lies the meaning of what awaits for us in this exhibition: Bailando en Casa del Trompo (Dancing in the Spinning Tops’ House). Here, the artist articulates natural as well as artificial elements bestowing upon them a new function, a transcendental meaning, another life.

Without succumbing to any normative, the artist develops with absolute freedom of creation, defending an art that suggests a reflexion over the concept itself of what art is, of aesthetic beauty. A fragment that could result as insignificant is now transformed into a poetic image and reaches the dimension of art.

The doings by hands of Humberto Diaz produce a visual literacy that can be comprehended almost as a language read and that spans from satires, derision, absolute provocation and the most imaginative suggestions. An object driven world appropriating the space around it and offering us the unexpected.”
