  • RF Alvarez at Adaptations
  • 07/16/19 - 08/26/19

RF Alvarez is an Austin, Texas-based artist primarily working with bold figures in ink and acrylic on paper. This exhibition includes select works from RF’s "Archivo" series, drawn from Greek and Roman influences as well as pre-Columbian imagery, that prefigure a kind of future artifact. His arrangements reflect a growing catalog of ideals - pride, comfort, and safety, among others - that ambivalently call on iconography as a means of mapping or documenting experience. The resulting images follow an ambiguous logic with the intention of recycling relics to carve out new meaning.
