Miguel Aragon

Performing and Creative Arts

Miguel A. Aragon (Assistant Professor) received his Masters in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin specializing in the field of Printmaking. His work is included in the book A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking and in 2012 he received the Artist of the Year in Printmaking Award by the Austin Visual Arts Association and the Austin Critics Table Award for Artist of the Year.Along with other numerous awards, his work has been exhibited and reviewed nationally and internationally in venues such as the International Print Center New York, OSDE Espacio de Arte in Argentina, Austin Museum of Art, Mexic-Arte Museum, and in countries such as Canada, Japan, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and the United Kingdom.
Using processes that are reductive in nature he continues to produce a series of works that addresses the Mexican Drug Cartel Wars. He ties together process and subject matter trough the use of metaphors and visual metonymies exploring the idea of perception, memory and transformation. His work is derived from a need to find meaning in these brutal events that repositions the corpse in our field of vision, reminding us that our physical existence is finite.
