Identity: Art Exhibition

View Full Event Description

Identity: Art Exhibition by Gustavo Duque, Lisa Restrepo and Belinda Shinshillas. Showing from October 4th to December 30th.
Opening Reception: October 4th, 2016 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM

“Identity” is an exhibition thought to examine how three Hispanic-Latino visual artist can create bodies of work so different and diverse when they have the same heritage. How gender, age and personal experiences can shape the way they perceive and express their vision based on internal observation.

The works presented here represent two countries that share rich heritage. Colombia and Mexico have a long history of cultural exchange. Traditionally, artist have created master pieces back and forth in both countries however, in this occasion their encounter is not in Latin America, but in New Orleans.

Luisa Restrepo and Gustavo Duque were born in the city of Medellin in different decades. Restrepo is a graphic artist working with a contemporary visual vocabulary deconstructing and reconstructing symbols and icons, creating stories through cut silhouettes influenced by the deep history of her native Colombia. Duque depicts the richness and strength of the soul exploring the fear and freedom of the human condition. He captures with a sublime force the voice that in the silence of solitude nobody wants to scream. Belinda Shinshillas is a native of the Capital City of Mexico. She works with abstraction as a way to move through space where all elements become a metaphoric voice. Her paintings are an extension of her identity and culture, using color as an idea, an attitude and interpretation between intimacy and distance seeking spiritual transformation.
