Rafael Lopez Ramos - Wonderland Exhibit - July 7th, 2012
Rafael Lopez Ramos
July 7, 2012 to August 25, 2012
Opening July 7 – 7 to 11 PM
17 Frost Art Space 17 Frost Street Brooklyn, NY 11211
This event features the recent works of artist Rafael Lopez-Ramos and a musical presentation by Lenna Pierce at 8:00 pm, and Roberto Poveda at 9:00 pm. All this is part of the symposium Havana, Miami, Brooklyn: A Convergence of Art and Music.
Lopez Ramos artworks are usually structured on multiple visual and semantic layers of contrasting iconographies from which a concept emerges. For his Wonderland series, Lopez Ramos has resorted to found objects, mostly containers/labels of consumer goods, and pornographic images, all of which morphs into a sort of palimpsest when superimposed on abstract expressionist backgrounds.
