Rudolf Gonzalez, who started his career 50 years ago, has been noted for his gleaming interpretations of the tropical sea.
Now 62, Gonzalez is celebrating 50 years in art through a simultaneous exhibition at Galerie Francesca in Megamall, and Galerie Nicholas in Glorietta.
“Sublime Seas: Rudolf Gonzalez’ 50 Years in Art” pays tribute to both the romantic notions and the spiritual aspects of the sea—a subject ironically with very few representation in the Philippines, which is surrounded by it.
“Sublime Seas” is the summary of Gonzalez’ experiences of the seas of our country and of Hawaii, where he frequently visited his cousin, another notable painter of the sea, Roy Gonzalez Tabora.
Gonzalez’ seascapes provide an array of seascapes where the waves, the wind and light create a dazzling vista, conveying both the ideals of the romantic and the awe and spiritual experience of the sublime.
