Agustín Lucho Pozo Gálvez: Planet River of the Tenement Roswell Artist-in-Residence
October 9 – December 20, 2020 Donald B. Anderson Gallery
Agustín Lucho Pozo Gálvez is originally from Chile. Pozo noticed that the overwhelming feeling of this challenging year was not necessarily fear or despair, but confusion and uncertainty. He channeled this confusion into large chaotic and colorful paintings that incorporate mixed media objects. The works are thickly painted with many layers, giving visual representation to the ways in which we’ve all been processing new information, changing our behaviors, and adapting to our situations. Balanced by his delicate mixed media sculptures, Pozo’s exhibit gives one the grandiose spiritual feeling of walking into an elaborately decorated Baroque church.
