Felix Carmelo Rios, Guillermo García Cruz, Marisol Martinez, and Mary Valverde. This roster of Latinx artists approach geometric abstractions with their unique processes. García Cruz creates unexpected black shapes with his sculptural paintings that he calls his “glitches” with minor shifts. While García Cruz destabilizes the entire visual weight of his work, Rios stabilizes his paintings with rhythm and design. Like Rios, Martinez is also concerned with the kinetic balance between color and shape in her work. While Martinez’s configurations are formed by a meditative process, Valverde creates her transcendent offerings from a spiritual space. This ensemble of works provides a nuanced view into today’s distinct, yet interconnected, genre of geometric abstraction.
