“The Black Life”
Death as a state of mind; just as a black life and its environment. Rather than just being conceived as the end of life, death derives in a variety of ideas and bursts out in mixed feelings that makes it a complex concept awaiting to be explored. A rare fascination and natural obsession has been the force that has drawn me to set a closer relationship with this theme. Death persists as a constant thought in my everyday life appealing both aesthetically and intellectually.
“The Black Life” is a collection including a series of coffin-shaped paintings, plus additional series of digital prints, installation, and video art evolving around diverse ideas on death. This collection is an introspective view on how the so-called end of a path proves to open up roads leading to discover rare beauty, reflection, irony and enigma within.

"DOS" is an exhibition that represents two painters; Carlos G Gómez and Gabriel Trevino. Though very different, they each embody the spirit of free thinking and each has a linked unity which personifies the essence of contemporary art and its evolution. Trevino's work will have samples that cover a ten year span, where Gómez will present a mixture of dated work.
The spirit of "DOS" is manifested in the belief that two make one,in this case, two painters make one thing: art.
Art Exhibition by: Carlos G Gómez and Gabriel Trevino
Opens with Reception: June 27 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Exhibition will run from June 27 to July 9
Where: Historic Alonzo Building
