Jorge Posada’s art has evolved into a semi-figurative depiction of the body: a cross between figuration and abstraction. He works by series in a mixed-media of charcoal, acrylic and oil on canvas and paper, which address the human form in motion.
Jorge Posada: Paintings & Drawings May 15 – June 16, 2013
Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 15, 2013 5-7 pm
In the compositional structure of his paintings and drawings, Posada creates a tension between the fragments of the body which are embedded into colors, textures and carefully applied transparencies. He places them in a pictorial geography occupied by arrows which he uses as a metaphor for the action of going blindly in every direction. “It is my intention to be part of a collective memory. I use the human form to explore the body and the rituals of violence which are very much present in my native country as well as in our global society.”
This series is Posada’s personal interpretation of walls photographed by him. on the walls he finds secret messages which show him visual compositions, human shapes and the unseen presence of others.
