Blurbs about local art by Gabriel Trevino


“Blurbs about local art” by Gabriel Trevino

What is art if not a reflection of a society. For me, one of the things I look at when I go see art and question is how was it produce and what inspired it.
The way we create art, the mediums we choose whether it’s ; pencil drawings, acrylics or oils, and or industrial paints to house latex paint, or found objects to news and magazine clipping for collages, and that is only mentioning 2dimensional art, but you can imagine what may apply to 3dimensional work. The accessibility of art supplies has change within the last 20yrs, the idea of being an artist is more commercial than ever.
If you can understand the cost involved in high quality fine art supplies vs. craft – or none traditional art media, you can understand how and possibly why certain work is put together a certain way.
In the end it can all be and it is considered art regardless of how it’s made, considering the quality factor.

Locally, most of the works imagery is inspired by border issues and or Mexican art and culture. It is what defines our art from the art produce by the rest of the world. It will continue to cultivate and perhaps evolve as it continues to become more contemporary.

 I think it is important to understand that art is not only a social or political idea. That what is most important is the principals and values are based on creativity and design.
