RENÉ ALVARADO / New Work
Artist Reception, Friday, September 16th 6-8pm
Artist Talk in the Gallery, Saturday, October 8th 3pm

As an artist, Alvarado returns to the cultural narratives of his childhood and his visual narratives draw on his strong familial ties. The imagery embraces the symbolism, folklore and traditional icons of his Mexican roots. Layer by layer, the metaphorical assemblage of color, texture and figural forms unveil a range of human emotions that instinctively flow from his creative process

The Madonna figure assumes “the role of parental guidance while other imagery suggests the beautiful imprints of lessons my father (who recently passed) shared." Organic references—a thread that runs throughout Alvarado's work—bring to mind his father's love of the botanical world of the desert terrain in his native Mexico and that of his adopted landscape of West Texas.
