Ro2 Art Gallery presents Cynthia Giron: "Playing in Between" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present Cynthia Giron’s solo exhibition, "Playing in Between." Giron uses her personal experiences and memories growing up as a first generation American to create her work. Focusing on both abstracted forms and more representational objects, she uses a calculated duality of play and control to render her recollections.
Giron describes the experience of being brought up within two cultures as often conjuring feelings of isolation and displacement, yet in her work she wants to highlight her journey on finding her identity in the ‘in-between’, through fun, play, and creating. Hands are often depicted in her paintings, used as symbols to represent the artists ties between two cultures. Giron uses a childlike approach in "Playing in Between" to create her own language in exploring her identity and creating space for herself.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 2.
