Born out of living just a few steps from two cemeteries, Teo Esguerra’s studies reveal a life marked with a sense of alienating familiarity. The artist’s Death Is My Neighbor series is an omnium-gatherum of graphic ephemera from the near and distant past, documenting his relationship with death, whose presence seems at times so close, and at others beyond recognition. New and old darkroom prints; screenshots from video games; paintings and illustrations; furniture manuals and booklets, all collect neatly though rather incoherently: the relics of a home, of a life being built and at once coming undone.
This work comes framed and issued with a signed Certificate of Authenticity (CoA).
