CESAR GARCIA

From Here to There
March 8 - March 29, 2016
Reception: Thursday March 10, 2016 6-8 PM

Cesar Garcia, born in Bogota, Colombia, has been creating artwork since his adolescent years. Eschewing the typical artistic path, Garcia studied engineering at the National University of Colombia where he became fascinated with architecture, specifically the work of modern and neo-futuristic architects like Antoni Gaudí, Oscar Niemeyer, and Zaha Hadid. These architects formed the indirect springboard for Garcia’s inspiration, but it was Josef Albers, the German-American abstract painter, who Garcia drew a bulk of his influence from. 

Where Garcia and Albers' color palettes overlap, however, the forms diverge. Garcia goes beyond typical painting techniques, using modern technology to craft a piece of artwork that spans the gap between the rational and the artistic brain. Each piece begins with a small sketch that Garcia embellishes with colors. From there, he makes a small model of the piece, digitizes it, and uses a laser cutter to shape the finished work. Garcia’s artwork is adorned with rivets, alluding to his engineering background, but the colors are light and playful, an incredibly crisp, colorful synthesis of his interests.
