EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Por Todas Partes is an exhibition of work by bujikimo (Cesar Garcia) and Alejandra Gotera. United by a common freneticism, chromatic intensity, and an all-over approach to painting, Gotera and bujikimo place their two distinct, yet complementary, artistic practices in conversation for their exhibition with Gallery114@HCC Ybor City Campus. Often combining Japanese hannya mask-inspired avatars with tropical imagery, bujikimo organizes iconography to pay equal attention to all areas of his compositions. In contrast, Gotera builds fully abstract compositions out of a frenzy of marks and bright fields of color, an exercise in finding stability amidst chaos that reflects her experiences as a Venezuelan living and working in the United States. bujikimo is an artist living and working in Tampa Bay, FL. Alejandra Gotera is an artist and educator living and working in Miami, FL.
