New York, NY, September 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature a Mexican artist, Fausto, in Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition. The exhibition is scheduled to run from September 13, 2011 through October 4, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, September 15, 2011).
About the Artist
Fausto’s varied collection of oil and wax paintings roam the vivid terrain of gender, the spiritual and the unknown. A master of sensual topography, Fausto’s sometimes plaintive, sometimes brutal abstractions of divine feminine energy reference the chakras, the cosmos and the ethereal realm. This is an artist interested in contradiction and interdependence who usually illustrates the eyes as the windows to the soul and who makes the link between male and female the locus of transformation in his work. For Fausto, the energetic exchange between genders is the driving force of the creative act. Drafted in crisp black and white or free floating color, his profuse vision of the metaphysical body captures humanity in hues of mysticism and introspection. These impressionistic abstractions measure the weight of life’s most eternal mysteries and their connection to the drive for love, connection and knowledge.
Fausto was born in Mexico City in 1954 and originally studied architecture.
