In his still lifes, Rudolf Gonzalez combines the expressionism and interplay of light and shadow, as evident in his latest exhibit, “Still Lifes by Rudolf Gonzalez,” which will run at Galleria Nicolas in Ayala Center March 30 to April 11.
With an Advertising Arts degree from Far Eastern University, Gonzalez is exceptional in evoking emotions through his visuals.
There is an element of realism in his works, but of an idyllic sort that recalls the oeuvre of Fernando Amorsolo in capturing the essence of light, and Juvenal Sansó in establishing an emotional resonance with his viewer. The artist counts Rembrandt and John Singer Sargent as his influences—both artists experimented with light and shadow.
Galleria Nicolas is located at the 3/F Art Space of Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Makati City. Call (632) 6250273, log in www.gallerianicolas.com, or e-mail [email protected]
