Wayne Gonzales




Wayne Gonzales investigates the physical and historical act of spectatorship in both his technique and content. For this exhibition, the artist presents a series of large crowd scene paintings. Based on a small number of original source photographs, one of the series shows a concentrated, seated audience at what may be a historical political rally. By contrast another series of paintings depicts a standing, cheering crowd watching a sporting event. Gonzales repeats these individual motifs over and over, even accumulating them in triptychs, making visible the slightest differences between each rendering.
