SPOTLIGHT: Rafael Valdivieso Troya
January 29 – March 12, 2016
Born in Ecuador and now a Cleveland Heights resident, Rafael Valdivieso creates intricate compositions using pen and ink, wash, acrylic, and collage techniques. A single work might contain hundreds of figures or faces layered into imaginary spaces that evoke a sense of teeming wildness and intertwine themes of human joy and struggle. Works in this spotlight presentation range from smaller pen-and-ink drawings to a very large muralistic painting.
Join us for an opening reception and opportunity to meet the artist on Friday, January 29. Works will be on view in the spotlight gallery through March 12, 2016.
