An Artist's Evolution 1991 - 2017

The Mexican Museum 

Fort Mason Center . 2 Marina Boulevard, Building D . San Francisco CA . 94123

January 12 - EXTENDED THRU March 18, 2018

Artist Reception: Friday, January 12th 6 - 8pm

Fernando Reyes has evolved from a San Francisco banker to a full-time artist, from a self-taught artist to a formally trained one, and from a purely representational artist to one whose broad portfolio now includes abstract art.

The pieces in this exhibition include works spanning from 1991 (pre-art school) to the present day. They include drawings and paintings, primarily of the human figure; printwork including intaglio and block prints; and more recent work in which handprinted paper cut-outs are arranged to form figures or abstract imagery. In viewing these samples of Reyes's work the viewer will trace the artist's evolution of subject, ideas, technique, and style.
