A collection of paintings by Edam Alvarado called With in is featured in the Biblio Gallery on the 4th floor of Bird Library. Alvarado is a sophomore painting major in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at SU.
In reflecting on his work, Alvarado says:
The exhibition “With in” embraces the inner representation of three particular life stories. In the process of making figurative art, I started to have opposing ideas as to what is most important to depict about someone who has had an interesting life. I decided to try to understand these inspiring personalities and realized that what is most worthy of capturing is their perception of themselves. Their inner evaluations are most worthy of being shown because we could never know what this person has done in his life or what life has done to this person. It is through the abstraction of the background, the richness of the colors and the clean or dirty brush strokes we might understand how they feel about their lives and their life decisions.
The exhibit will be on display through March 2014.
