What: Portraiture by Maga Rincon
Exhibition Dates: April 15–30, 2011
Where: SOMArts Ramp Gallery
The work of local artist Maga Rincon touches on many interesting themes, including self-identity as well as the relationship one has to one’s subconscious. Her work’s vibrant colors draw in the viewer and hold the eye with their vibrations.
According to Rincon, symbolically, one aspect that is present throughout these works is an elongated neck as, referencing slender lines of contemporary beauty. Moreover, these elongations reference the neck as the locus of the fifth chakra, the human creativity center.
