> DESCRIPTION

Elins Eagles-Smith Gallery is pleased to exhibit recent monoprints by renowned San Francisco artist Gustavo Ramos Rivera. This body of work was produced in the Summer of 2011 at the Thomas Blaes Atelier in Bern, Switzerland.

Gustavo Ramos Rivera is an abstract painter, sculptor and print-maker whose work is known nationally for its intense emotional content and its unique, personal symbolism. Rivera combines the palette and iconography of the indigenous cultural heritage of his native Mexico with classic techniques of Post-War American abstraction. Rivera constructs layers of intense translucent color fields upon which he lays simple hieroglyphic markings, which seem at once archaic and contemporary.    

Born in Ciudad Acuna, Mexico in 1940 Rivera has lived and worked in San Francisco since 1976.He is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships and in 2006 the San Jose Museum of Art presented a survey exhibition of the artist's work that traveled to additional venues in Mexico and California.
