Alejandro Almanza Pereda (1977, Mexico) received his MFA from Hunter College in New York City. Using poor or found materials in dangerous or unlikely combinations, Alejandro Almanza Pereda creates striking works of art. A major theme is instability. Cinder blocks, plaster sculptures, metal chains, disco balls, and light bulbs are often displayed in tenuous equilibrium. Another theme might be described as entropy.
