Octavia Art Gallery will present new works by Cuban artist Alex Hernández Dueñas. The exhibition includes paintings, glass etchings and works on paper.
In his work, Alex Hernández Dueñas investigates themes of status, privilege and hierarchical structures within society through images of pristine pools, manicured lawns, sleek homes and country clubs. Influenced by a wide range of artists, including David Hockney and Richard Diebenkorn, Dueñas’s flattened, simplified and colorful handling of compositions creates atmospheres that are dreamlike and often times eerily void of human life.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will run through June 11.
