Kase Painting




Studio Notes: 5/26

Almost finished with this new Kase Painting in the studio. Color inspired by an old industrial site that I see each day while commuting to work. The painting is a perfect fit for the reclaim wood L-frame. Originally I had thought of making a black or dark grey painting for this frame to match the black manufactures mark on the plywood. Decided to go with the Lt blue first and figured if it didn't work it'd be easier to lay on the black/Grey then the other way around. The painting has three layers of color. The original ground color was brown with a warm white graffiti tag which I then removed with graffiti remover. The trace tag then got an additional layer of off white over coat before applying the final Lt Blue color. Just need some additional collaged on paint marks which often take a while but for the most part this painting is pretty much done.

Latinx Abstract - Artist Talk

I'll be taking part in an artist talk this Friday, March 12, 2021 at 7pm.

Join curator Elizabeth Ferrer and exhibition artists Candida Alvarez, Karlos Cárcamo, and Vargas-Suarez Universal for a discussion about the exhibition Latinx Abstract. A cross-generational presentation featuring ten artists working in diverse media, this exhibition underscores the significant although little-explored role that abstraction has played among Latinx artists.

In doing so, the exhibition aims to challenge the established history of abstract art in the United States, which largely excludes the contributions of Latinx artists. The evening will include a virtual walkthrough of the exhibition and presentations by artists Candida Alvarez, Karlos Cárcamo, and Vargas-Suarez Universal.

Latinx Abstract Curated by Elizabeth Ferrer January 21 - May 2, 2021 BRIC, Brooklyn NY

Excited to have some of my monochromatic abstract paintings from the Kase Painting series included in this exhibition. It's one of the first times that I show this body of work in an exhibition since I started it a few years ago. This is true for the large scale pieces. Nice to see so much great work in the exhibition with some familiar names but also many artists that I had not heard of before. 

The exhibition includes work by: Candida Alvarez, Maria Chávez, Alejandro Guzmán, Glendalys Medina, Freddy Rodríguez, Fanny Sanín, Mary Valverde, Vargas-Suarez Universal, and Sarah Zapata.

*Due to Covid 19 restrictions an appointment is highly recommended.
