The exhibition opens May 11 and runs through May 31, 2019 with an opening reception on Thursday, May 16 from 6-8 pm.

About the Artist

Born in Argentina, Osvaldo Bacman grew up across the street from The School of Fine Art, of the National University of La Plata, where he was able to nurture his interest in art from an early age, enrolling in countless courses in drawing and painting. He eventually became drawn to Cubism and Concrete art, first working primarily in wood, passé partout, and soft foam, painted in acrylic. More recently, he’s discovered ornamentation, and its ability to be used as an expression of history through its significance to cultures.

Bacman’s pieces do not reflect any social or political themes – they are a reflection of his inner self, while keeping in mind that one’s inner self is undoubtedly affected by the world around them. Through his geometrical abstraction, he presents an opportunity for the observer to visualize the invisible.
