All Grown Up, Cuban-American artist Richard Vergez at &gallery

Sep 14th, 2019 . 7-10pm

In his solo exhibition, All Grown Up, Cuban-American artist Richard Vergez explores and dissects the perception of development: oscillating between the emotional, intellectual, and physical spaces in which growth occurs.
While creating this body of work, the artist posed the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” In itself, the question exudes proverbial innocence and then at once can be transformed into contemplation of existentialist dread. The artist continues to play on classic surrealist motifs, utilizing hand-cut collage technique as well as a contemporary form of digital manipulation during the process to create ethereal, dark and dreamlike sceneries. These mixed media narratives invoke a sense of equivocal contemplation between the internal and external, between development and accomplishment, as if to ask: “Are you being what you want to be?” 

All Grown Up will be on view until October 27th, 2019.
