New York City.- the Luise Ross Gallery is pleased to present “Jose Rivera” a solo exhibition, on view at the gallery from January 5th through February 4th 2012. In his first solo exhibtiion, self-taught artist, Jose Rivera will show his sculpture, mixed media collages and works on paper. Constructed with materials Rivera has on hand, such as the innards of a discarded TV, postal envelopes, playing cards, or domino pieces, the detritus of our homes find new life and new meaning in his obsessive and labyrinthine creations. An acoustic guitar completely covered in broken pieces of crayon is transformed into a colorful, and lyrical three dimensional mosaic.
