Austin, Texas-based artist RF. Alvarez (b. 1988) explores the act of artifact-making through painting. Using disparate historical references, he draws from symbolic motifs and mythical iconography to address issues of identity and culture. Using color as a gateway to evoke an emotional resonance, RF.’s carefully selected palette creates an atmospheric environment for his figurative narratives.
