The private show "Dreams of Modernity" displays a series of work that show formal richness and technical diversity, establishing it as an unprecedented, innovative exhibition.Amundaraín reflects on the loss of utopia, a main feature that characterizes our globalized contemporary society.

acrylic, acrylic mirror, UV printing, painting, screen printing, cutting laser, 42.5 x 64.2 in.
A fundamental aspect to Amundarain's set of work is the modern technological process, which he uses in order to achieve the specific visual conclusions, which define and characterize his artwork.
Conceptually, Amundarain's artwork goes beyond that which is concrete and specific. In this way, the artist carefully observes particular social and cultural phenomena, as in the case of analyzing the circumstances of his own cultural background, but the ultimate result generated by his work is that of universality: a post modern society that refuses to believe in a collective dream and that highlights individualism. "Dreams of Modernity" is Amundarain's major show to the date.
