I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Galería Pacífico owner Gary Thompson for several years now, and I’m always amazed at the way he always dresses up his gallery impeccably whenever he has visiting artists in town. And as if that wasn’t enough, he manages to always connect with artists that not only are amazingy talented, each in their own way, they are real artists, eager to not only communicate their thoughts and feelings with their work, but with their voices as well. Such was the case with Mexican artist David Leonardo, whom I had the pleasure of meeting while being featured in the gallery this month. By the time you read this, he will have returned to San Miguel Allende with his girlfriend, Cati Demme, who shows his work in her own space, Generator Gallery, in this popular and artsy Mexican town. The work will be on display at Galería Pacífico for a while, however, and if you have the opportunity to view it in person, and if you listen carefully, you will hear David’s voice echoing in the air, bouncing off his paintings, eloquently sharing stories of his experience with the Huichol, which largely influenced the body of this work. Needless to say, the gift of capturing his exhibition panoramically with my 360 gear was irresistible. ¡Mil gracias, David!
