Jovencio de la Paz “Boy who stared at the Sun,” at PDX Contemporary Art

Jovencio de la Paz (Visiting Assistant Professor, Fibers)

If you’re in Portland, OR April 2 – April 30th, swing by PDX Contemporary Art to see Jovencio de la Paz’s (Visiting Assistant Professor, Fibers) project “Boy who stared at the Sun.”

“Returning to print production after several years, Jovencio de la Paz’s new screen-printed works continue his pursuit of color, form, and materiality as vessels for narrative. Moving away from the rectilinear dimensions and limitations of cloth in his previous work, de la Paz emphasizes the physicality and objecthood of the images he produces on foam, rubber, and plastics. Having recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest, de la Paz describes this work as driven by a renewed interest in landscape, meteorology, and isolation. The cut-out surfaces of these works occupy the wall as subjects themselves, and their interiors refer to inner landscapes of frenzied pattern, symbol, and secret language.” – PDX Contemporary Art
