The work of Alex Dorfsman (Mexico, 1977) has addressed the problem of landscape constantly. We would say that all his work is part of the landscape genre, but even more, Dorfsman persistently reflects on the uses and meanings of this genre in our current culture. Is the landscape necessarily the other of the individual? Can the individual inhabit a landscape, or should their relationship always be reduced to contemplation? Is the landscape and the individual confronted as nature and culture? Is the landscape seen only a vestige of the illusion of a different world? These are some of the questions that the artist poses systematically, highlighting that the landscape emerges as "a visual moment" (1) before the gaze of the individual, who projects his subjectivity towards the seen..."(Ady Carrión Parga). In "Superficie" are the fantastical constructs of dioramas, theme parks, and science fiction films, among others, make a good case for how easy it is for us to accept credible substitutions of reality. In a similar vein, advertising images, either in large-scale format or as audiovisual sequences, feed our imaginations with fictitious constructs of artificial realities. Our perception and acceptance of these constructs may well be involuntary, but it is undoubtedly effective. An awareness of the advertising images that surround us has become the focus of my photographic inquiries. I have found that it's my will to closely observe these street tableaux that generates the layering of images, artificial and real, which support my visual discourse.The structures that support the fictitious worlds created by these advertising images, their architectural insertions, give them a meaning well beyond their original, banal promotional purposes. A complex, richly layered dimensionality disrupts the fictional advertising contexts, creating a new, much more interesting reality of intersecting constructs; a veritable fusion of two- and three-dimensional planes."
