“This piece has a similar content to 'Lovers in Secret' and yet the tone is less about desire’s intertwining with danger and more about loss. Is the couple saying their goodbyes after a tryst in the woods? Is one of these lovers dying?” — RF Alvarez
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 Using disparate historical references, he draws from symbolic motifs and mythical iconography to address issues of identity and culture.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.
