This Crazy Life – Opening April 26th, 7-10PM at New Image Art

this_crazy_life
New Image Art is pleased to present, This Crazy Life, a group show featuring Gregory Bojorquez, Patrick Martinez, and Michael Vasquez, opening Saturday, April 26, 2014, 7-10pm.

This Crazy Life encompasses the commonalities of the rough lifestyles that are faced on a day-to-day-bases in inner/urban cities. The works capture rawness and chaos that cohabitate so naturally in the “hood” environments. These three artists are able to capture and interpret realities through portraiture and still lives in an array of paintings, photographs and mix-media pieces.

Patrick Martinez (Los Angeles, CA) successfully combines paintings with neon lights. Brightly painted subjects range from still lives of food with weapons to neon signage often found on windows of markets and restaurants. The subjects bask in the neon light creating realistic seedy club scenes, which also incorporate the use of words in Spanish and English. There is humor as well as a subtle quality of cynicism in his paintings. Martinez works are often tongue in cheek insights of cross-cultural Los Angeles.

Gregory Bojorquez (Los Angeles, CA) photographs strong portraits of fellow Los Angelino’s. Bojorquez compositions contain an honest intensity of L.A. life in the hood. On exhibit will be a rare, large-scale collage measuring 3′ x 5′, Eastsider , a narrative of spontaneous street scenes and portraits of people from East L.A.

Michael Vasquez (Miami, FL) paints passionate figurative pieces of gang members and friends that are bigger than life. Vasquez figures are exaggerated via his powerful use of composition, color and textural brush strokes. The paintings are symbols of his search for balance in a world filled with conflict.
