The Sugar Plum and Grumbling Growler Gallery of Lake Worth is presenting, for one night only, a unique and exciting pop-up art show featuring the works of Emmanuel Gonzales. Emmanuel Gonzales has had a strong presence in the South Florida art scene for many years. He has a bold and edgy style fusing together a variety of materials and mediums to create movement and energy. The resulting pieces are a balance of strong imagery and intimacy, achieved with an attention to subtleties often refined through detailed work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“When You’re Smiling” by Emmanuel Gonzales

 

 

On this particular night, in addition to presenting brand new work, the curtain will be lifted as the audience gets to peek behind the scenes to see the artistic endeavor. For this exceptional showing, attendees will be treated to a stimulation of their senses as they observe a live nude figure pose for the artist as he translate the image to an artistic rendering on canvas. Guests will be able to mingle with the artist while contemplating newly unveiled works.

 

 

 

 

Emmanuel Gonzales has had a strong presence in the South Florida art scene since his graduation from Palm Beach Atlantic College in 2001. He has a bold and edgy style fusing together collage, pencil, pastel, watercolor, and oils to create movement and energy. The resulting pieces are a balance of strong imagery and intimacy, achieved with an attention to subtleties often refined through detailed work. His body of art explores the past and present through realism and portraiture, and includes a growing retrospective of American icons where each piece is presented as a fragment in a larger American patchwork.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emmanuel Gonzales and “Bowie”

 

 

Emmanuel tells The Rickie Report, “Individually, my subjects characterize the social climate at a given moment in history; the images are influential and relevant to certain ethnic or social groups. Some are intentionally foreign to non-members of a particular group or generation, creating a ‘recognition factor’ which reaffirms the identity and unique cultural perspective of one part of society while simultaneously establishing a feeling of “otherness” in viewers on the outside. Just as members of one social circle might identify emotionally with a particular image through a shared social lens, outsiders will experience these images differently. Ideally, then, my work will create a juxtaposition of the viewer’s identity with the identity of others and will encourage them to consider their place as an individual part of a larger whole.”
