Share Article

After having a successful opening, Jamie Martinez and Gonzalo Andrew Penaranda, not only sold a couple of paintings, but also showed us something different. Jamie's style of painting gives a lot of insight to the importance of geometry and reality, mixed with lots of triangles. Some of the paintings are textured and extremely thick but once again, triangles everywhere. The two short films by Jamie use lots of symbolism, structure and sound to transport you to another world in which triangles and masks rule. If you want to see something different, then this is the place to go.

A Gathering of the Tribes will present GONE AWAY, an exhibition featuring work by Jamie Martinez and Gonzalo Andrew Penaranda. The inspiration behind the work is the exploration and adventure of the gorgeous state of California (Jamie) and the Peoples Republic of China (Gonzalo Andrew). Jamie Martinez spent a total of four months in California, and after traveling the state, he put together a colorful collection of paintings that show his exceptional view at life and art. He believes in the power of different mediums, and will also display two video installations and some photographs of New York. Gonzalo Andrew Penaranda latest series is influenced by a recent trip to the Peoples Republic of China, the beauty and kindness of the people leaving a deep lasting impression.

The show runs from December 13th - 19th, with an opening reception Saturday December 13th, 6-9 p.m.
