Nel Figueroa - TROPICAE SOMNIUM
SEPT 4 - SEPT 22
TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY 12-5PM
GROUP AND TOUR VISITS WELCOME. CALL OR EMAIL TO SCHEDULE.
Nel Figueroa’s avant-garde mixed media paintings offer viewers a paradoxically unusual yet familiar transcendence into themes of poetry, mysticism, humor, and pop-culture, while honoring the traditional Caribbean color palette, urban street-art, and contemporary cultural convergences. Figueroa’s soulful depictions and portrayals of celebration, natural earthly beauty, animals, and fashion keep us engaged, slightly nervous, as we wonder about the creative mind and personal pursuits of a prolific Ponce, Puerto Rico based artist. Somnium Tropicae encompasses new works by a dynamic, highly creative, and unrestrained artist.
