VISUAL ARTS - WOOD CUTS
In Tijuana's "100% Mexican Beef" exhibition, Ricardo Sanders' works are executed in high relief in wood, cut with a chain saw. Figures protrude from the surface of Ricardo Sanders' images. Some of them, as in "It's a Beautiful Day to Kill You", look as if they originate in some dark cartoon.

In Tijuana, art venues try to 'fill a vacuum'

By Sandra Dibble, Staff Writer, August 20, 2006

TIJUANA – The setting is serene: white walls with white tile floors, rooms where the daylight filters softly and classical music whispers. Few people here know about this cloistered space on a quiet street in Colonia Davila where bold shapes and colors fairly leap from the walls.
This is where Petra and Jens Herrmann have launched their quest to let the collecting world know about Baja California's growing circle of contemporary artists.
"We're convinced that their work is at an international level, only that they're not yet recognized," said Jens Herrmann, a native of Germany who moved to Tijuana with his wife to open Galeria H&H.

"Best bet • In Tijuana, a showcase for artists from northwest Mexico"

The owners of Galeria H&H, a commercial art gallery in Tijuana, are doing all they can to help paint a better picture of artists from Northwest Mexico.
Over the past 18 months, gallery owners (and curators) Jens and Petra Herrmann have targeted and attracted several contemporary visual artists from Northwest Mexico.

"Outside the lines - Tijuana, Carlsbad exhibitions are haunting and wildly eclectic".

"Art without dogma" is a thought-provoking phrase. It's also the title of an exhibition at Tijuana's Galeria H&H, which means to give eclecticism a good name. Gallery owners (and curators) Petra and Jens Herrmann make a case for open minds and eyes, for being equally receptive to tradition-minded and freewheeling work.

"Maximiliano Lizárraga's works capture a world beyond the reach of nature".
Robert L. Pincus describes Galería H&H as a serious showcase for Tijuana artists.
Newsweek
September 2002
"The Word's Most Creative Cities", Tijuana among them.

"Like Ruanova's paintings, which draw on videogame imagery, much of Tijuana's art is inspired by technology... Artists and producers abroad are taking a growing interest in Tijuana."
