Nets: The Interaction between Line and Color
On exhibit at the Westover Branch Library, March 3 – May 4 2015
Please join us for a reception honoring the artist and his work on Saturday, March 28 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Fernando Osorio Zumarán plays with line and color in this intriguing series. He uses two types of lines: one drawn by hand and the other by instrument. The lines spin nets over colors; the colors spread over the space. The nets represent the rational restrictions that our minds dictate over our emotions, which are represented by the panes of color. It is a dialectic interaction between thought and emotion, mind and heart, line and color. The artist says this particular set of paintings are especially meaningful to him because they mark a turning point in the curve of his life – the point he returned to painting.
