  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) May 18, 2016 - The exhibition opens on May 20th, 2016 and runs through June 9th, 2016 with an opening reception on May 26th, from 6 - 8PM. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.

    The passionate and distinctive work of artist Carla Negron is a blend of figurative painting, abstraction, expressionism, and symbolism. With rich pigments, bold articulation, and fierce, gestural brushstrokes, Negron draws viewers into her complex world, creating layers of meaning that are slowly unveiled as one studies her compositions closely. Her main goal is to eliminate the cursory signals that divide people from one another and reveal the passion, emotion, and humanity that are found in every one of us. She describes her paintings as "a deep exhalation" of love, fury, and intensity that electrify viewers and unite the spectator and the work of art in a sublime moment. Strongly influenced by literature, Negron wants her paintings to work like visual poetry created out of color and balance that transform and excite those who encounter them.

    A native of Puerto Rico, Negron began painting early in life and studied under several notable Puerto Rican artists before finding her own singular style and creative mark. Though she considers herself a citizen of the world, she admits that the bright colors characteristic of her work are inspired by the colors of her Caribbean home, where she continues to live and work today.
