Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada was in San Francisco finishing up his recent solo exhibition “Fragments of Humanity” in one of White Walls Gallery’s project spaces. The exhibit consisted of work from his fragment series of hand pulled wall fragments taken from actual wall surfaces. A technique that the artist has mastered over the years the artist is able to capture an actual sample of the space and its weathered texture. He then paints portraits on these pieces as the fragments offer chance shapes that lead to composition of the portraits. He also exhibited for the first time in the States a sculpture created from a 500+ year old piece of limestone. It is the reoccurring use of aged and significantly loaded pieces of wall and stone that add an important aspect to the aesthetic nature of the work. Overall a strong exhibition that we suggest you take the chance to see in person.
