Roberto Gutierrez: Abstracts

Roberto Gutierrez: Abstracts

On view March 5th – April 2nd, 2022 at Avenue 50 Studio

On view in the Main Gallery March 5th – April 2nd, 2022, a series of abstracts by Roberto Gutierrez.  Created with Sumi Ink on archival watercolor paper, these abstracts are new iterations of the bold and colorful cityscapes usually characteristic of his work, in these he focuses on the 6th Street Bridge. The bridge was a historic Los Angeles monument that was an icon of Gutierrez’s childhood; it went through periods of neglect and restoration since its construction in the 1930’s, eventually condemned to be demolished. In 2016, the arduous demolition process commenced, and this monument of Los Angeles history was erased from the cityscape forever. Gutierrez paints the bridge in black ink against stark white paper, representing the subject in a striking and urgent manner. Roberto Gutierrez’s Sixth Street Bridge abstractions are an ode to a now gone monument and a part of LA history, a record of the ever changing landscape of this city.
