The exhibition Searching In The Presence of Light will feature a selection of painting works by Sergio Gomez from the last five years. The title refers to Sergio Gomez’s interest in the use of light as a metaphor for truth. Light, as an experience, touches all aspects of our lives from the moment we are born to the moment we leave this life. Sergio Gomez’s life-size works are often referred as doors of passage to the other side. They invite the viewer to explore the multifaceted experiences of the human condition. In his most recent paintings, Gomez searches for the presence of light within the human spirit and reinterprets its powerful influence. (more texts at: http://www.sergiogomezonline.com/writing.html).
