|Gunther Gerzso (1915-2000), "T-4 Naranja-rojo-azul", 1974, color lithograph, 20 x 28 inches.
Between the United States and Mexico, Central America and Cuba there is a special bond, a familial connection. The exchange of population is one evidence of this bonding but even stronger evidence is provided through aspects of culture: Language, Music and Art. Revealed in art are societal forms, social criticism and community customs, with special ‘flavors’ of the individual home countries.
The Tobey C. Moss Gallery mounts an exhibition to focus upon these aspects in the Latin paintings, lithographs, mixographs, etchings and drawings by renowned artists Raul Anguiano, Rufino Tamayo, Leonora Carrington, Carlos Merida, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Gunther Gerzo, Pablo O’Higgins, Leopoldo Mendez, Jose Luis Cuevas, Francisco Zuniga and others.
Many of these artists are/were shared by many countries through their travels and education. An easy blurring of borders is demonstrated in the techniques, compositions and narratives in their work. Political broadsides and folk customs, abstraction and photography reflect the varied visions of these artists of Mexico, Guatemala, California and Cuba.
