MARCO MENDOZA

Breaking with Realism
September 2 – September 22, 2017
Reception: Thursday, September 7, 2017 6-8 PM

In Marco Mendoza’s work, the power of religious art is combined with the textural and formal variety of abstract painting to create works with both spiritual depth and a vibrant feel for color and style. “My paintings are inspired by the search for the true self that every human needs to find,” the artist says, and he gives that search dramatic form. With semicircular shapes that suggest halos or icons, the figures in his paintings radiate an aura of tranquility and are given a modern appearance through strong colors and fluid, spontaneous lines. From hand-lettering to bold strokes and drips of paint, Mendoza makes images with a clear, immediate impact.
 
Working in acrylics and mixed media on canvas and paper, the artist allows the process of painting itself to determine how each work will be realized. He notes that he enjoys “...when painting gestures become a sort of dance,” and that feel for rhythm and movement is easily seen in his balanced compositions. In addition to painting, Milwaukee-based Mendoza also operates a gallery in Puebla, Mexico.
