The Houston-born, Zurich-based artist introduces Diet Sonata with a Hallmark-like text of awkward, repetitive, almost robotic greetings. “May all be well.” “Welcome home.” “Dear friends, wish you the best.” “We are happy here and you be happy there.”
The LA show comes on the heels of Cruces’s solo show, Sift, at Levy Delval this past spring, as well as a handful of group shows in the last few months, including Plowing Solids at New Galerie, A Form is a Social Gatherer at Plymouth Rock, and C R A S H at New Scenario, and In the Clear, Caring, Curing, his joint show with Antoine Donzeaud at Milan’s NAM project.
