Latin American Contemporary Art Projects (LaCa) is proud to announce the July 31, 2014 opening of Eternal, an exhibition featuring the work of Argentine artist Leandro Manzo.
Eternal brings together the most prominent body of Manzo’s figurative expressionist paintings created over the last eight years on two continents. These paintings showcase Manzo’s spontaneous trademark approach and process, inundated with energy, movement, and dynamism. Manzo’s creations come from a cityscape, moment, or emotion, often featuring Charlotte’s cityscape or neighborhoods, captured in a playful, vibrant palette that is ever-eternal and creating an imaginative scene that continues long after the edges of the works. The exhibition will also feature Manzo’s drawings, which are woven throughout the entire production and feature his distinctive mark.
Manzo is a studio artist born in Rio Gallegos, Santa Cruz, Argentina, and had his first group exhibition at the Museo de Artes Visuales de Quilmes by the time he was thirteen years old. Since then, he has had more than twenty solo exhibitions across the globe and close to fifty group exhibitions. He holds the distinction of receiving permanent U.S. residency for Exceptional Aptitude in the Field of Arts, and has works in numerous public and private collections, including at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California.
An exhibition opening with the artist will take place on Thursday, July 31 from 6-9 p.m. at LaCa Projects.
Eternal will be open from July 31 through September 5. Gallery hours are 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and by appointment. Visit www.lacaprojects.com, or call 704-837-1688/e-mail [email protected] for more information and for photographs of selected works from the exhibition.
