Gomez/Gonzalez. Two Person Exhibition by Sergio Gomez and Mario Gonzalez Jr.

After a successful exhibition at Gallery 13 in Minneapolis, MN, GOMEZ/GONZALEZ comes to 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago starting the weekend of ExpoChicago and running in the first half of October as part of Chicago Artists Month.  The exhibition highlights an ongoing collaboration and synergy between Chicago based artists Sergio Gomez and Mario Gonzalez Jr. Earlier this year, both artists worked simultaneously to paint a 72” x 168” work using their individual styles.  The result was an elaborate mixture of Gomez’ abstract figuration interlaced with Gonzalez’ stylized letter forms and symbols titled “Gomez/Gonzalez.”  The expressive qualities and systematic application of forms combined with the energy of spontaneous painting performance make this 4-panel work a center piece for the exhibition (see attached).  Three additional 48” x 50” collaborations pieces are part of the exhibition as well as individual works from each artist. Gomez and Gonzalez are both established and successful international artists whose careers have launched them into many international projects. Gomez/Gonzalez brings these two artists together  A video of their painting collaboration is available at
