Kirk Hopper Fine Art presents Gil Rocha and Victor Calise Blanchard exhibit opening reception
At Kirk Hopper Fine Art, artists Gil Rocha and Victor Calise Blanchard examine core issues that people are often reluctant to address. In the process, they challenge audiences to recognize something about themselves and the border society. These artists work in radically different modes but share an activist stance: both reveal the mechanisms of power and vulnerability by literally and figuratively stripping away layers of aesthetic and behavioral pretension. At issue is the notion of skin, a membrane that wraps and protects people, but can just as easily be made vulnerable, as well as eroded and ravaged.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 19.
