Collection of the Artist
BAF, New Ending, April 22 - June 19, 2021
Rydel Cerezo is a visual artist residing in Vancouver, Canada. Recent solo exhibitions include To Be From The Same Tree at Massy Arts Society, curated by Angie Rico as a part of Capture Photography Festival (2020). Recent group exhibitions include New Photography From the Pacific Northwest at Melanie Flood Projects in Portland, USA; Back of My Hand at Capture Photography Festival (2020); In Over Our Heads at Franc Gallery, curated by Jocelyne Junker; The Lind Prize Exhibition at The Polygon Gallery in Vancouver (2020); A Glitch in the System at the Photo Vogue Festival with Vogue Italia (2019); and Summer Open: Delirious Cities at the Aperture Foundation in New York, USA (2019). Cerezo holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design where he studied for a semester at the Glasgow School of Art (2018). In 2021, Cerezo was an artist-in-residence at BAF which amounted in an exhibition of new work titled New Ending. This exhibition arose from Cerezo’s experiences as a queer Catholic Filipino man navigating desire, societal and cultural conditioning, sexuality, and shame.
Cerezo’s work is an exploration of himself with an emphasis on the negotiation of his conflicting identities. Throughout his life, poems and literature have informed his outlook and, in many ways, his work attempts to translate text into photography. Lorenzo was a part of Cerezo’s solo exhibition at BAF and features a young figure reclining atop a late 90’s Honda CR-V; the composition of this photograph is reminiscent of the religious paints of the 16th and 17th centuries like those of Carravagio and Gentileschi. This work is edition 1/2.
