Join us on for a free Gallery Talk with artist Rubén Aguirre. Aguirre will walk guests through his current exhibition Tectonic Reflections sharing how the natural landscape is a source of inspiration for his abstract paintings – most of them created during the pandemic.
Hosted by the Museum’s Auxiliary Board, the gallery talk will be followed by a reception in the Courtyard. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
About the exhibition
After shifting his art practice into a warehouse studio in 2019, the natural landscape continued to be a source of inspiration for Rubén Aguirre (b. 1979). By building on the visual language of his urban murals, his current studio work has generated a new dialect where reduced shapes and colors speak of terrestrial forms. Rendered as abstract topographies, his wood panel paintings invoke poetic contemplations on origin, self-awareness, one’s connection to the Earth, and our impermanence. These abstracted meditations on exhibit collectively reflect on the unforgiving tectonic forces of nature while remaining ambiguous and peripheral.
