UTRGV – Brownsville Rusteberg Art Gallery’s first exhibition of the Fall 2017 semester will feature the work of Kingsville, TX artist and Texas A&M-Kingsville University Professor, Jesus De La Rosa. Rosa’s show will consist of additive and subtractive two-dimensional work that derives from his insight with the Texas/México landscape.
De La Rosa describes his process by saying, “I see these layers and images as metaphors for the phenomena of cultural appropriation, the crossing of cultural, economic, social and historical borders, or a disclosure on the human condition. I make works that coerce these layers to interrelate, coexist, and come into synthesis. Understanding these languages through my work allow me to merge differences and similarities and make sense of my place within this framework.”
“Borderígena: Many Times Over” opens Tuesday, September 5 at 6:00 pm. The exhibition will run until Friday, September 29. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome. Free to the public.
