A Potrait of Society by Raul Gutierrez

A Potrait of Society- Paintings and prints by Raul Gutierrez.

Displayed from the 10th- 25th of May 2013.

In my artistic work society has always been the raw material from which my ideas and reflections flow translating them into, strokes, lines and shapes.

My admiration for the men and women who have joined forces to accomplish freedoms, the formation of groups to preserve and transmit culture generation after generation, the despair in which we sometimes fall as a result of the setbacks of life, and self-criticism to find ways to solve problems collectively, are some of the ideas that shape this exhibition.


En mi quehacer artístico la sociedad siempre ha sido la materia prima de la cual brotan ideas y reflexiones que traduzco a través de manchas, líneas y formas.

La admiración por aquellos hombres y mujeres que han unido fuerzas para conquistar libertades; la formación de grupos para preservar la cultura y  transmitirla de generación en generación; la desesperanza en la que a veces caemos como resultado de los reveses de la vida y la autocrítica que en colectivo permite encontrar formas para la resolución de problemas, son parte de las ideas que conforman la presente exposición.
