Chicago Fine Art, posted by Chuck Gniech, professor of art and curator of Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago, Tuesday, June 23, 2009.
“I review a number of exhibition proposals each month, for possible exhibition at Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago. The proposals are sent from all over the country and occasionally from around the world. As I began clearing my desk by opening the numerous sealed envelopes containing samples of artist's work, I came upon a postmark from Colombia. I was intrigued. The proposal was from Lucia Gomez.
As I read the Artist Statement, I found some wonderful passages with which I could identify. Again, I was intrigued. Edited from her statement... "My paintings express metaphysical symbolism and shamanic themes..." "Forms flow... giving way to... labyrinths full of mystery and color that emerge from a state of mental relaxation."
There seem to be some wonderful ideas here. You can find Gomez´s statement in its entirety on her website at:
