This exhibition features a selection of abstract paintings by Gustavo Ramos Rivera. Inspired by the landscape of his native Mexico and the bright colors of pre-Columbian and Mexican arts and crafts, Ramos Rivera has a great love for his materials, which he manipulates with a sense of ritual and rhythm. His use of graduated color suggests the stratification of earth, sky, and land, connecting his work to artists such as Hans Hofmann and Richard Diebenkorn. Born in Ciudad Acuna, Coahuila, Mexico in 1940, and a resident of San Francisco since 1969, Ramos Rivera is the recipient of the 1992 Fleishhacker Foundation Eureka fellowship.
The San Jose Museum of Art would like to thank the Koret Foundation for support of this exhibition.
