  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) October 28, 2011 - About the Artist

    Hauntingly romantic and evocatively nostalgic, photographer Alfredo Gonzalez uses digital photography to unique and inspiring ends. Poignant, richly velvet-like textures characterize his photographs, stirring a deeply felt sense of the past, present and future. Gonzalez uses a hybrid of styles, including writing-like scrawls in some works, which allude to the powerful work of the Abstract Expressionist movement. The artist does not subscribe to any specific artistic dogma or practice, however; instead, he constantly experiments with different styles and techniques. Approaching photography from various disciplines, Gonzalez is able to penetrate the exteriors of his subjects with stirring, beautiful empathy. Through these ethereal, poetic works, he voices the ephemeral nature of time. "There only remain the timeless moments that slip between our daily destinations, filtering through our souls, to resurface as breaking memories which do not distinguish between dreams treated as realities or realities treated as dreams," he says.

    Born in the Canary Islands, Alfredo Gonzalez has exhibited his works throughout Western Europe.
