August 2016-Delineation

Shade Projects is proud to present Delineation, the solo exhibition of Texas artist, Angel Cabrales. We are thrilled to showcase a large-scale sculptural installation titled Juegos Fronteras, which is a Playground that aims to show the metaphorical restrictions placed upon our future and youth by the placement of borders in an area dependent on the free flow of Cultures. In restricting the flow for safety and security the Playground is rendered useless for those outside and cripples the ability of those inside to truly experience the freedom and joys the grounds encourage. Cabrales said, “This installation was conceptualized by the current issues on immigration in Southwest, as well as the rest of the nation.”

Cabrales is a multi-media sculptor who is creating dynamic sculptures and interactive installations that he says, “Is inspired by a great love for science, math and engineering, as well as science fiction and pop culture along with a passion for machinery and gadgets which translates into my work.“ His artwork utilizes industrial design and commercialism approaching tough topics through a satirical lens, resulting in artwork that blends social and political concerns of today while beginning an important dialogue started with viewers and participants, states Shade Projects Curator, Nicole Royse.
