FEATURED ARTIST: Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez
Baltimore-based artist Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez mitigates the divide between physical and digital studio practices by creating work that straddles the two. Whether its through the experimental use of two-dimensional scanning to arrive at an expressive form of digitally-assisted painting, or using DIY 3D scanning techniques to explore resulting faults and geometries from an archaeological perspective, Gonzalez’ work investigates the artistic practice in the 21st century. Rooted in digital media, his work often takes the forms of traditional & 3D printed sculptures, 3D renderings, videos, and digital illustrations.
Gonzalez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1983. His family emigrated to the United States in 1990, settling in Miami, Fl. where he received a focused art education at Design and Architecture Senior High (DASH). He received his BFA as well as a MFA in Digital Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in the early 2000s. His work was featured in a solo exhibition in 2012 at Open Space Gallery in Baltimore, and he has been exhibited at galleries and institutions worldwide, including MoMA PS1, NY; Abteilung Fur Alles Andere, Berlin, Germany; The Deleon White Gallery, Toronto, ON; Emma Thomas Gallery, Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Calle Museo 2 in Valencia, Spain.
