November 2008: Gabriel Fernandez Oil Paintings
The paintings of Gabriel Fernandez will be featured in a solo show at the Guardino gallery opening this month, Thursday, October 30, 6-9 PM. The show will run through November 23. Gabriel Fernandez continues to explore interior spaces in his oil paintings. Many of his compositions suggest a minimalist framework; though they don’t depart from the traditional methods he has been trained in. He reached out to the objects in his life that have some sort of special meaning to him. This eventually led to his long association of chairs which can be more figurative at times than the actual human form. He explores the relationships between mood and light, realism and the narrative with the abstract, and paint with the process.
