Wayne Gonzales

°1957, Louisiana (US) – lives and works in New York (US)

Wayne Gonzales works with figuration and abstraction, deploying graphic strategies rooted in photography and print media, Wayne Gonzales’s complex artistic practice has spanned over twenty-five years. The paintings are often made in groups or series, each of which is meant to be shown in relation to one another. Associative relationships build between the individual works, implying a larger narrative structure.

Though they are visually inviting, his paintings remain open and elusive, characterized by layered subject matter and a sharp worldview. Gonzales’s work often has notable social or political content, drawing on sources that range from found historical or contemporary photographs and documents to the artist’s own photographs.

Wayne Gonzales has had numerous solo exhibitions at venues such as the Centro de Arte Contemporane, Málaga; the New Orleans Museum of Art; Le Consortium, Dijon; and Mary Boone Gallery, New York. He participated in group exhibitions at, amongst others, Whitney Museum of Art, New York; Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Dallas Museum of Art; Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC; Moma PS1, New York; and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna.
