‘Personality Plus’ By Carlos Gamez De Francisco

“When in Cuba, I was exposed to the influence of the figurative arts by the presence of the Russian Academy,” said artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco. “This presence, as well as the censorship of contemporary art and the limited access to information, was the accepted dogma.” Then he came to Louisville and his art world gradually opened up. His latest solo exhibition shows just how far he’s come, with his “work [providing] an escape from reality and [creating] an illusory world. I am more interested in altering history than depicting it accurately.” His reception is Saturday, March 14 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
