Aragón’s work is based on a newspaper image of a murder related to the Mexican Drug Cartel Wars that dominate the artist’s hometown of Ciudad Juárez. Aragón’s image fuses his technique with the way such newspaper photographs remain in the memory of the city’s residents. His unique method of burnt residue embossing (a technique that raises a three-dimensional image on paper) results in imagery verging on abstraction; the prone body blends into the landscape and seems to disappear from view.
