How does it make you feel? what does it make you think? My art is a way to engage in a reflective moment of our perceptions of humanity. My portraiture and figurative art are driven by the emotional response we have to human gestures, poses, expressions, skin colors, perceptions, experiences, beliefs and the challenge to discover and question more...
My use of color is intentionally bold, with visible texture, marks and brushstrokes that honor the distinctiveness of each human being and their life experiences and emotions. With my brushes, wedges, palette knives, mediums and multi-colored palette, I strive to create an abstract, gestural and expressionist piece that is so much more than what I, as the artist can see and feel, but as said by one of the great old masters, Edgar Degas: “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” AND FEEL - Luzdy Rivera
