WHAT ARE YOU EXPRESSING IN YOUR EYES? - ALBERTO GÓMEZ INDIVIDUAL EXHIBITION AT CREALDE SCHOOL OF ART
“Alberto Gómez' 'truth' in life is love and loss combined with hope, faith and joy,” says Barbara Tiffany, exhibition curator at the Crealde Art School. "He shows this truth in his large-scale works, stripping his soul again and again, while giving us, his audience, a glimpse into our own lives."
Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Alberto Gómez is a figurative artist, painter and master printmaker who often mixes the past, the present and the future in his painting. It depicts people, figures, and everyday life, while addressing spiritual, social, philosophical, historical, and political events. Gomez, who became a US citizen in 2011, has participated in more than 100 solo and group exhibitions and his works feature in numerous private and corporate collections in Latin America and the United States. In 2002, he received the Simón Bolívar Award for Best Central Florida Latin American Artist.
Crealdé has also commissioned the artist a large three-panel mural on the history of immigration in the United States, scheduled to be displayed during this exhibition and also at the FusionFest, Orange County Festival of Arts and Cultural Affairs.
