The 2011 Escapists include Raul Gonzalez, Nubia Gala-Seibert and Zak Vasquez. The exhibition features recent figurative and abstract works from the trio, each embarking in a different stylistic direction.
Gala-Seibert creates a sense of mood with often tenebrous fields contrasted by intense swathes of color. Vazquez’s approach is more concerned with creating a fluid atmosphere with an emphasis on contrasting textures, playing with the idea of the painting as a physical object in space. Gonzalez’s work varies and spans between cityscapes, the human figure and abstraction that melds geometry and gesture.
The exhibition is on view from May 30 through June 10.
Founded in 2009, John Palmer’s movement of Escapism is a year-long mentorship program that enables local artists’ careers through formal critiques, casual meetings and coaching with Palmer that address conceptual, formal and business issues.
