MIGUEL PIÑERO

Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition
September 16 - October 7, 2014
Reception: Thursday September 18, 2014 6-8 PM

Venezuelan artist Miguel Piñero meshes traditional craft with modern digital technology to create his visually arresting and highly original works. With a keen eye for color, texture, and design, Piñero puts his imagination to work and produces dreamlike imagery that seems to sprout from the page. Allowing himself the freedom to use many different types of inspiration, he creates works that contain diverse images but are always reined in by his careful hand.

Piñero uses colorful chromatic threads and systematic placement to attain optical beauty in his work. Often using the figure, he literally weaves the slick vinyl surface with raised textural woven threads to create a sort of static effect. Within this visual space, the viewer cannot easily discern if the image is appearing or disappearing. The weaving technique that the artist has honed is reflective of the digital tools he uses – the colorful strands woven together are not dissimilar to pixels on a screen – and when they come together they make something much larger than themselves. Miguel Piñero is weaving a world of his own, and inviting his viewers to join him there.
