Mexican Lovers by Carlos G. Gomez


Mexican Lovers by Carlos G. Gomez

"Mexican Lovers is in my opinion a very dynamic and vibrant piece that is aesthetically pleasing but carries a great deal of symbolism and perspective. The painting at first site seems symmetrical to each side but it is actually loosely drawn in freehand style. The painting has a crayon like textured appeal as if or was painted with oil sticks with the exception of the jalapeno peppers painted in detail at the the center of the crosses. I like how there seems to be two horizons which is commonly used in religious paintings symbolizing the bottom horizon as life on earth and the top horizon above the clouds and in to the heavens. In a stand back view there is an overall haunting image of a serpent like image starring at the viewer as it hides behind the abstract figures.
In a very primitive style the painting perhaps tells a story, idolizing the "chile" as a god like figure, or in a sense signifying its importance to the culture. " gt

My Private High school art Teacher
said that All College / University Copied Their students artworks " To get Inspired and have a Growing Experience feedback among Teacher and students "... and that's Why most if not all University art teachers Get frustrated because Their art it's NOt Original And People Won't Buy it and That Nobody Knows about Them specially in The R.G. Valley !
