JOURNEY OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS
R E N E A L V A R A D O
OCTOBER 9th – NOVEMBER 30th
Artist’s Reception October, 9th 6 – 9pm
Based in San Angelo, Texas, Alvarado’s paintings are infused with a quality that transcends time. He has become more sophisticated in his use of positive and negative space. Floral patterns activate the paintings and create a sense of embossed texture to clothing, the skin of animals, human figures and the landscape. As Alvarado’s interest and understanding of dreams and the subconscious have developed, so has the sophistication of his symbolism, which has crystallized his thoughts into a sort of psychoanalytic pictorial language. Through symbolism, metaphors, and pictorial language, Alvarado tells his story.
